2023 Home For The Holidays

Page 21 2023 Home For The Holidays Lincoln Daily News November 23, 2022 Yom Kippur and Passover are all more important Jewish holidays. Hanukkah is considered more of a festival than a holiday. Unlike Christmas, the date of Hanukkah is different each year. It always starts on the 25th day of Kislev, which is the ninth month on the Jewish calendar. This year, it will start on the evening of December 7 and end on December 15. In 2024, Hanukkah will last from December 25 to January 2. Like Christmas; however, Hanukkah traditions are important to those who celebrate the holiday.
