Chanukah, meaning "dedication" in Hebrew, refers to the joyous eight-day celebration during which Jews commemorate the victory of the Macabees over the armies of Syria in 165 B.C.E. and the subsequent liberation and "re-dedication" of the Temple in Jerusalem.

This year (2012 Secular Year - 5773 Jewish Year) Chanukah will be celebrated Dec. 8 - 16.
