Chanukah Blog Crawl 2012 – Mazel Tov!!
AdoptedMomToChazzTheDog Blog is proud to be a part of this Chanukah Blog Crawl, and one of the hosts of Night 6 along with Terrier Torrent. We have all been learning a lot about this Jewish holiday/festival.
Let’s take a moment to review.
There are several traditions that are observed during the holiday of Chanukah, also known as the Festival of Lights or Miracle of Lights. So after the destruction of the holy Temple in Jerusalem, during the Macabeean Rebellion between the Jews and the Assyrians in the year 165 BCE, the people went to work cleaning and restoring the building. As they searched among the ruins they realized they needed to relight the Temple. In those days, lights were “powered” by oil. As the people despaired of finding any of the precious oil, they moved aside some rocks & boulders and underneath the rubble, they discovered one cruet of oil. While they were relieved to find the oil; they new the cruet would only last for one day and one night. They lit the flame ——-> and miraculously the oil lasted for eight days.
The story of the oil is the reason that when Chanukah is celebrated we eat foods prepared in oil. Potatoes, fried in oil known as Latkes and served with applesauce or sour cream on the side. There is also a donut, known as Sufgianot. It is a jelly filled pastry, fried in oil & glazed with sugar usually

Our Chanukah Miracle Wish this year 2012 is for all breeds of dogs to be considered equally adoptable and find their furever home. During Chanukah it is tradition to put the menorah in the window, for all to see and enjoy the warmth of the Festival of Lights. This goes for all those doggies & kittehs in shelters and temporary homes. Breed Specific Legislation (BSL) is not right and should not be made into law. Don’t judge a dog on his appearance, the shape of his head. Look for the love & loyalty you will receive from your giving one of them a safe furever home. This message brought to you by:
