Days of our lights
Celebrate Chanukah, the festival of lights, with the Chabad Center for Jewish Life. Chanukah commemorates the rededication of the temple in Jerusalem after it was occupied and destroyed by Syrian soldiers in 168 B.C.E. A jar of oil that was supposed to last for just one night lasted for eight, allowing the Jewish people time to purify and reclaim their holy place. The Plaza menorah is lit nightly at 5 p.m. through Sunday, Dec. 13. For more information, visit www.chabadsantafe.com.
