Temple Ohav Shalom in McCandless had a congregational Hanukkah dinner on Dec. 3.

Hanukkah started at sundown Nov. 27 and ended at sundown Dec. 5 this year.

The dates vary each year compared to the standard western calendar because the Jewish calendar is a lunar calendar rather a solar one.

This year Hanukkah unusually early, and the first full day of Hanukkah coincided with Thanksgiving.
