In 2018, the eight days of Hanukkah, the Feast of Dedication begin at sundown on Sunday, December 2 (the 25th of Kislev on the Hebrew calendar) and finish at sundown Monday, December 10.

Different from the seven stemmed Holy Lampstand in the Temple of Ancient Jerusalem, the Hanukkah Menorah has nine stems.  Eight of those stems hold candles to represent each night of Hanukkah, while the ninth stem holds the Shamash or servant candle which is used to light the other candles.  On the first night the Shamash candle lights one candle; on the second night it lights two candles and so forth on each night until the eighth night when all are lit.   

Listen as our Messianic Minutes Hosts sing their fun version of "The 8 Nights of Hanukkah.
