Hanukkah, the Jewish observance celebrating the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem during the Maccabean Revolt, begins on sunset on Sunday, Dec. 6, with the lighting of the first candle on the menorah. 

The festival is observed by the kindling of the lights of the nine-branched menorah, one additional light on each night of the holiday, progressing to eight on the final night which takes place on Dec. 14.
