1. “Is Hanukkah about celebration or is it a religious holiday? There is no mention of Hanukkah in the Hebrew bible, but later on the sages wrote about Hanukkah in other holy books. An additional prayer for Hanukkah is included in the Jewish prayer service during the eight days of the Hanukkah festival. Jews also say a special Hanukkah prayer when lighting the menorah at home. “Blessed are you dear God, our King, who gives us blessings and commands us to kindle the sacred Hanukkah lights for eight glorious days. We gaze upon the flames inspired, to give thanks and recognize Your miracles. Amen.”

2. “God of underdogs, hear our Hanukkah prayer. You love the hopeless cause, when it is your cause, because impossible situations allow you to prove your kindness, your power, and your flawless memory. You love to remember your promises, especially your promise to side with the poor and underprivileged against the proud and self-sufficient. Remember that promise on our behalf, today. Without your intervention in this case, injustice will prevail.
Remember your miracles so long ago, the miracle we remember with Hanukkah. Remember the impossible odds; remember the lost cause; remember the hopelessness; remember the ‘Cinderella story’ turnaround… and do it again, here and now. As in Israel of old, when you brought the surprising victory of the Jews against their invaders, bring the same for us and our just – and otherwise hopeless – cause. We will not forget to give you credit.
Thank you, our God of amazing endings… You are God of Hanukkah, and we here dare to remind you that you ask to be reminded in prayer, to remember your promises for justice.
We pray this in Jesus!”

11. “Hanukkah is about re-telling of the story of Hanukkah. It celebrates the victory of the Maccabees, Jewish soldiers who fought to practice their religion against an evil King in ancient times. The Maccabees were victorious even though they were outnumbered. When the Jews went back to reclaim their Temple, they found it trashed by the enemies. In order to restore it, they needed precious oil for light. All was destroyed except for one small jar, enough for one night; but lasting for eight! That’s why Hanukkah or (Chanukah) is called the Holiday of Lights.”

12. “Our Hanukkah menorah with its eight branches and
Kindling light
Remind us of the diversity on our Earth
Bound together with a branch of Oneness.
It is a reminder that we are interconnected as a
Global Community.”

13. “Freedom is deeply personal as well:
Freedom to express one’s gender identity without fear
Freedom to express one’s racial identity without fear
Freedom to make choices about of life and deepest beliefs
Freedom to live our faith in all of its beauty
without negating anyone else’s.”

14. “At times of deep darkness instead of walking in fear
Let us kindle Godly lights
Lights within and lights beyond
And let us increase these lights each day
To light the way for All.”

15. “Freedom has many faces:
Freedom from war and conflict or threats of terror
Freedom to have a secure home
Freedom from hunger, poverty and despair.”
