Best wishes to Broken Hill residents who celebrate Hanukkah

We are in the midst of the Jewish festival of Hanukkah right now.  Hanukkah in 2012 is being celebrated between the 8th and 16th of December.  The corresponding dates in the Hebrew calendar are 25 Kislev to 2 Tevet in the year 5773.

This eight day festival and holiday is a story involving revolution and miracles.  A simple description can be found here on the Huffington (Huff) Post Religion site.

I wish everyone in Broken Hill who is celebrating this festival every good wish.

Happy Hanukkah, cheers, Jane D
