Also called the Festival of Lights, Hanukkah celebrates events from more than 2, years ago. A Kid-Friendly Version of the Hanukkah Story. By: The word “Hanukkah” means “dedication,” and it comes from the moment when the Temple was triumphantly returned to the Jewish people. The most famous story about that rededication comes from our Talmud. The Book of Judith is a deuterocanonical book, included in the Septuagint and the Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Christian Old Testament of the Bible, but excluded from the Hebrew canon and assigned by Protestants to their tells of a Jewish widow, Judith, who uses her beauty and charm to destroy an Assyrian general and save Israel from oppression. Perhaps the most famous part of the story is what happened next: a tiny jar of oil kept the candles burning for the full eight days. However, this detail does not appear in any Jewish texts until years later in the Talmud, mentioned in a larger discussion of why Hanukkah observance is so important.
