About Stamp

This brilliant new stamp issue shines a light on Hanukkah, the eight-day Festival of Lights, which this year begins at nightfall on December 10.

Derived from the Hebrew word for dedication, Hanukkah celebrates the miracle that took place following the rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem – Judaism’s holiest site – after the Jewish people reclaimed it from their oppressors around 165 BCE. The victors found only one day’s worth of oil for the Temple menorah, which was required to remain lit at all times. Yet the sacred light burned for eight days, until the new oil supply arrived.

To commemorate this extraordinary occurrence, Jewish families kindle an eight-branched candelabra called a hanukkiyah, or menorah, adding a light each evening while reciting special prayers and blessings. Many place the hanukkiyah in a window to share the miracle with the world.

Designed by Gerald Querubin at Ent ro Communications, the stamp features rich yellow tones to illuminate your Hanukkah greetings.
