Dedicate and Celebrate!: A Messianic Jewish Guide to Hanukkah


Messianic Jewish Publishers 1999

Hanukkah, the Feast of Dedication, or the Festival of Lights, is not the Jewish alternative to Christmas. Although it is celebrated in the winter, this festive holiday describes a story all its own—of faithfulness to God, of bravery against all odds, and of the rededication of a defiled Temple. For Jews, Hanukkah is a time of bright lights, of delicious smells, of delightful singing, presents, and games. It is a time to proudly remember our heroes and wonder at the miracles of God.

Yeshua (Jesus) the Messiah—himself a Jew—also celebrated Hanukkah as recorded in John 10:22: "Then came Hanukkah in Yerushalayim [Jerusalem]. It was winter, and Yeshua was walking around inside the temple area, in Shlomo's Colonnade." But Hanukkah is not just for Jews! Hanukkah means "dedication," a theme of significance for Jews and Christians. So why not look into this fascinating holiday? Discussing its historical background, its modern-day customs, its deep meaning for all of God's people, this little booklet covers all the how-tos. Recipes, music, rules for playing dreydel and prayers for lighting the menorah are all included.

Praise for the Print Edition

…poignantly written…for the benefit of the novice as much as the experienced Hanukkah reveler.

About Messianic Jewish Publishers

In 1941, The United States is drawn into World War II. During that same year, Dr. Henry Einspruch publishes his classic book, The Yiddish New Testament, a breakthrough in evangelistic literature for Jewish people. Over the following decades, the publications of Lederer/Messianic Jewish Communications have been widely used to impact thousands of Jewish people with the Good News of Messiah. These books and tracts have been distributed in the Orthodox Jewish community, have been given out to Jews in the former Soviet Union, and have been used by Messianic congregations and Jewish outreaches all over the world. Messianic Jewish Publishers mission is two-pronged: Reaching out to Jewish people with the message of Messiah and teaching the non-Jewish spiritual family about their Jewish roots.
