Hanukkah 2017 begins December 12. When I began learning about the Bible holidays I learned a lot from Neil and Jamie of Jewishjewels.org.
They began the ministry of “Love Song to the Messiah” in 1978 to share the Good News with the Jewish people and to teach the Church about its Jewish roots. Learn how the Light of the World celebrated this beautiful Festival of Lights and see how it is celebrated today by Jews and Messianic Jews worldwide.
