Transcript

Hanukkah celebrates the victory of the Maccabees, a small band of faithful Jews, over the Greek-Syrian oppressors in their struggle for religious freedom in the Land of Israel.

The festival of Hanukkah began Sunday, Dec. 2. It is celebrated through Monday, Dec. 10.

Hanukkah is filled with symbolism, especially on the dinner table.

Mussie Begun, co-director of Chabad of Chula Vista, taught Midday Edition co-host Jade Hindmon how to make latkes and about that symbolism.
