Hanukkah Tablescape Ideas

by Jeannette Kaplun

Hanukkah is the Jewish Festival of Lights and it’s a beautiful tradition that commemorates the rededication of the Second Temple of Jerusalem. During Hanukkah, on each of the eight nights, a candle is lit in a special menorah (candelabra) called a 'hanukkiyah' to celebrate the miracle of oil lasting eight days.

2. Place the hanukkiyah in the middle of the table on top of a drip tray. You can have as many menorahs as you wish, since the idea is celebrate light.
