On Dec. 15, 1998, the Mayer Kaplin Jewish Community Center in Skokie, Ill., set the inaugural world’s record for largest number of dreidels to be spun at one time. At least 200 people were needed.
That’s one of the interesting tidbits of of information I found on Chabad Lubavitch’s special Hanukkah site. The site pays homage to all things Hanukkah, offering up educational and fun information about the Jewish Festival of Lights.
Since we are now in the midst of the eight-day festival, which began sundown Wednesday, I thought I might share some interesting websites that offer Hanukkah information.
Every year, I learn so much about about the Jewish holidays and this year is no exception.
Much of what I learn is through the many people in the Oklahoma City area Jewish community who have helped educate me on Jewish matters. The other way is through some sleuthing on websites.
Here are some of the sites I found interesting:
Chabad Lubavitch: Chanukah 2010
Holidays on the Net: Happy Chanukah
Judaism 101: Hanukkah
