Hanukka, Hanukkah, Chanukah, Chanukkah,Hanucca, . . . Every year, for the past 43 years of doing the daily Dry Bones cartoons, I face the same mind-cracking question; how to spell the name of our eight-day Festival of Lights!
The Hebrew word Chanukah (or Hanukka, Hanukkah, Chanukka, Hanucca,) means dedication and it celebrates our re-dedication of our Holy Temple in Jerusalem after its having been defiled by the Syrian/Greeks occupiers. This year the first night of Hanukka ( Hanukkah, Chanukah, Chanukkah,Hanucca,) is December 24th. Have a happy! BTW a great, meaningful, and really classy gift for the occasion is the fabulous Dry Bones Passover Haggadah.
