Menorah Lighting at Liberty Station to Mark First Night of Hanukkah

"I celebrate the Hanukkah holiday of all our citizens belonging to the Jewish faith", Erdoğan said and added that "respect to diversity lies at the core of the strength of unity, togetherness and sense of belonging" of the nation.

Hanukkah starts Tuesday and runs through December 20, marking the most widely celebrated Jewish holiday in remembrance of the religion's miraculous victory over threats from the Syrian-Greek empire and the small amount of oil that burned for eight days. According to the story, a miracle happened and the oil lasted for eight days, allowing enough time to prepare new oil in the religious tradition.

To honor the miracle of the holy oil, Jewish people eat foods fried in oil.

"We have enough parking and a big enough space", Rabbi Yossi Labkowski of the Chabad Jewish Center said of the new location. "A handful of Jewish people stood up against the mighty army".

The festival of Hanukkah celebrates the 2nd century BCE victory of the Maccabess, a small band of faithful Jews, and their victory over the Greek-Syrian oppressors in their struggle for religious freedom in the Land of Israel. The eight-day holiday begins at sundown Tuesday and lasts until December 20. "There are about 30 of us in Ernakulam and we plan to celebrate the festival together this year", says Josephai Abraham (Sam) the president of Kerala Jews Association.

The south Lee County Chabad purchased the nine-foot menorah - to replace their former eight-foot menorah - from a company in the northern U.S, Greenberg said.

Why do Jews light candles during Hanukkah?

The menorah is now on display outside the movie theater at Coconut Point, but on Sunday it will be part of the Chabad of Bonita Springs and Estero's revamped Hanukkah celebration.

The previous site, at Coralwood Shopping Center, wasn't going to work this year.

Starting at 3 p.m. near Florida Blue at Coconut Point Mall, there will be food for purchase such as the traditional Hanukkah latkes, donuts, falafel, shawarma and Matzah ball soup. It will continue an important tradition within the new Hanukkah celebration. "All we had was the menorah lighting and the ceremony around it".

Latkes are fried potato pancakes, made from potatoes and eggs and fried in oil, in honor of the holiday.

Admission: Entertainment is free.
