Hanukkah tends to be underrepresented during the holiday season when trees and ornaments take center stage. This year, that sentiment rings even more true since the first night of Hanukkah is also shared by Thanksgiving! Those 8 nights slip away pretty fast and before you know it, it’s over! Do something special this Hanukkah beyond gift giving. Check out these Hanukkah Events!
