Hanakah, which lasts for eight

THE HOLIDAY is known as the
"Feast of Lights" because of the
custom of lighting candles on each
of the eight nights.
These are lit in remembrance
of the miracle which is said to
have occurred when the Temple
was captured from the Syrians.
At that time only a small jar of
holy oil-just enough for one day-
was left behind. However, this tiny
jar of oil burned for eight days
and nights until new oil could be-
secured with which to fill the sa-
cred lamps of the Temple.
In keeping with the holiday sea-
son, the Newman Club has planned
several special events this weekend.
All Catholic students and facul-
