Happy Hanukkah

"Hanukkah is the festival of lights, instead of one day of presents, we have eight crazy nights," sings Adam Sandler. The lighting of the menorah recalls the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem after the Maccabean revolt in 166 BCE. In recent years there have been several examples of LEGO menorahs, such as this event from two years ago in Northfield, NJ. Watch the news story on its construction. This event was coordinated by Stephen Schwartz, of Building Blocks Workshops. I've previously blogged Stephen for his workshops involving the construction of significant religious and cultural sites in ancient Jerusalem.
