The first candle of Hanukkah this year (2020) should be lit on Thursday, December 10th. The final candle is lit on December 18th. The Hanukkah holiday is all about courage and desire to fight for your freedom. This year it's quite symbolic because all the people in the world, including the Jews, are fighting for their health during this challenging pandemic.
This Hanukkah please refrain from visiting friends, keep the celbrations at home and take care of the elderly members of your family. May God help you survive and overcome the 2020 pandemic, just as he helped the Maccabees overcome the Greek suppressors. Happy Hanukkah!
