Class on Chanukah, starts in this Lecture from Minute 41"

This year, Chanukah starts Thursday evening, December 7th, 2023, at sundown.


Noahides can mark the days of Chanukah in some other customary ways


This includes the option to recite certain Psalms (any of chapters 30, 33, 67, 91, 133), and reading and thinking about the history and messages of Chanukah. You can also attend the public lighting of outdoor Hanukkah menorahs that might be taking place near you during the festival (contact your local Chabad Center for more information about times and places). The following recitation paragraph, adopted from the Jewish traditional liturgy (version of the Ari Zal), can also be said at any time during all the days of Hanukkah (especially at the end of your prayer of thanks after eating a meal):


“We praise You, G-d, for the miracles, for the redemption, for the mighty deeds, for the saving acts, and for the wonders which you performed in those days, at this time: In the days of Matisyahu, the son of Yochanan the High Priest, the Hasmonean and his sons, the wicked Hellenic government rose up against the people of Israel to make them forget Your Torah and violate the decrees of Your will. But You, in Your abounding mercies, stood by them in the time of their distress. You waged their battles, defended their rights, avenged the wrong done to them, delivered the mighty into the hands of the weak, and the many into the hands of the few, the impure into the hands of the pure, the wicked into the hands of the righteous, and the wanton sinners into the hands of those who occupy themselves with Your Torah. You made a great and holy name for Yourself in Your world, and effected a great deliverance and redemption for the people of Israel to this very day. Then the Israelites entered the shrine of Your Holy House, purified and rededicated Your sanctuary, kindled lights in Your holy courtyards, and instituted these eight days of Chanukah to give thanks and praise to Your great Name.”
