First Day of Hanukkah in Australia

The celebration recognizes occasions that occurred in Judea more than 2,000 years prior, when the Syrian lord Antiochus requested the Jews to desert the Torah and freely venerate the Greek divine beings. This demonstration incited a defiance headed by Judas Maccabeus, peaked by the retaking of the Temple in Jerusalem, which had been tainted by the Syrians.

In an eight-day festival, the Maccabees washed down and rededicated the Temple. As indicated by the Talmud, there was just enough blessed oil to re-light the candelabra for one day, yet, marvelously, it stayed lit for eight days.

The focal gimmick of the recognition of Chanukah is the daily lighting of the Chanukiah, an eight-spread candelabra with a spot for a ninth candle, the shammes, used to light the others. One light is lit on the first night of Chanukah, and an extra candle is lit on every progressive night, until, on the eighth night, the Chanukiah is completely lit up.
