Hanukkah - The Festival of Light

Thursday, December 06, 2018 |  Ariel Rudolph

The Menorah, the seven-branched candelabrum that stood in the temple, was instructed by God to never be allowed to go out. The Seleucid Greeks attacked, invaded and occupied the land in those days. They desecrated and profaned the Temple.

The Hasmoneans, after their victory against the Seleucid Greeks, found only a small jar of oil holy enough for use in lighting the Menorah. The oil was only enough to last a day. It took eight days for the production of new consecrated oil. The menorah was kindled and a miracle took place! The oil lasted for eight days until new pure oil could be made.

Since Hanukkah reminds us of the miracle of oil, we eat oily foods during this time. Potato latkes (fried potato pancakes) and sufganiot (dougnuts).

Hanukkah is the perfect time to order our exceptionally high quality Canaan olive oil "Eden" produced in Israel's south!

The more you order the more you save on shipping costs!

Please note: The container labels will be in German.
