Happy Hanukkah!

Members of Quebec City's Jewish community celebrated Hanukkah on Dec. 17. Known as the Festival of Lights, it celebrates the miracle of the temple oil lasting eight days after the reconsecration of the temple over 2000 years ago. The lighting of the candles is like the passing on of knowledge: you can pass it on without taking away from yourself. A true gift of giving!
