To our Jewish community at King’s, we wish you a happy Hannukah, filled with warmth and light this season. 

What is Hannukah? 

Hanukkah, or Chanukah in Hebrew, is the Jewish festival of light. The name means ‘dedication’, describing one of the greatest miracles in Jewish History. To find out more about this Jewish holiday, you can read more here, or even contact our Jewish Chaplain, Rabbi Dr Harrie Cedar at [email protected] 

The dates of Hannukah change every year, but it will always fall in November or December and last for 8 days. This year, Hannukah falls on the 7th December to 15th December. 

How is Hannukah Celebrated at King’s? 

This year, students and staff joined together for a Chanukah lighting on Strand campus, for the first night of the festival. Joined by the Chabad of Bloomsbury in the Strand Quad, as well as the King’s Chaplaincy, the night was a special first celebration here at King’s.
