      Hanukkah Celebration at Temple Beth Am

      Hanukkah Celebration at Temple Beth Am in San Jacinto on Friday, December 27, at 7 pm.
      Temple Beth Am will celebrate Hanukkah, Festival of Lights, at its special December 27th Friday Hanukkah service. The public is welcome to participate in lighting the menorah.
      Hanukkah celebrates the rededication of the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem. The Jews, in the Maccabean Revolt, defeated the Syrians who had occupied and despoiled the Holy Temple. When the Eternal Light, which hangs above the Holy Ark containing the Torah, was rekindled, there was only enough oil to last for a few hours. But miraculously, the oil lasted eight days, allowing time to produce more oil.
      Hanukkah is celebrated by lighting the menorah candles for eight days. Potato pancakes (latkes), a traditional food, is served at gatherings. Also, jelly doughnuts (soufganiyot) are eaten. Foods fried in oil commemorate the holiday.
      Temple Beth Am is an independent community synagogue serving the San Jacinto Valley since 1958. The Temple is located at 20520 State Street (at Soboba Road). For information, the website is www.templebethamsj.org or call 951-445-0502.
