Feeling festive? Celebrate holiday traditions in Israel as you learn about the history of Hanukkah

Join Tour Director Miky at his home in Israel as he talks about the history of Hanukkah and all the ways locals in Haifa (and across the country!) celebrate their Hanukkah traditions. If you’ve ever found yourself wondering, "What is the meaning of the menorah?" or been curious about the storied roots of the Hanukkah celebration, Miky will cover that and so much more. Did you know that Haifa, Israel holds a festival in December to celebrate Judaism, Christianity, and Islam all together? Miky will give you the local’s perspective into the Hanukkah celebrations, including how people practicing different religions and holiday traditions in Israel come together to celebrate their faith during the winter season. Plus, what’s a Hanukkah celebration without some delicious food? Miky will talk about the many delicious treats popular with Israelis and how they connect back to the history of Hanukkah. Latkes and sufganiyot, anyone? You’ll chat with Miky about his favorite Hanukkah traditions, the history of the menorah, and the importance of olive oil in Hanukkah celebrations. Learn this and other fascinating insights into holiday traditions in Israel as you celebrate Hanukkah traditions—both old and new—alongside a local expert.
