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

I Had A Little Dreidel

I had a little dreidel, I made it out of TREATS

Oh driedel, driedel, driedel I made it out of treats

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:

    So nice to make your acquaintance, especially at Hannukah time. We loved your songs… here’s what Mom would do with the first one…

    She’s switch the latkes to night two so I would not eat too much rich food! (Seriously?)

    She’d go find carob gelt so I shouldn’t get sick! (Mom… stop, you’re embarassing me!)

    All kidding aside, that’s really creative! Chag Sameach!

  9. In addition, Chanukah began to be used as a theme for a variety of products. Thus, Loft’s Chocolates and Bartons put out games such as “Valor Against Oppression”, with modern day Maccabees such as Moshe Dayan. Emily Solis-Cohen put out in 1937 a complete guidebook where one could find sheet music to Chanukah songs and detailed descriptions of how to give a Chanukah party. These and other books presented Chanukah at home as “bright with candle lights and gay with parties and the exchange of gifts”.

    • Thanks for taking time to leave a comment. Mine is a pet blog, but some of us decided we wanted to post aout Chanukah…so the Chanukah Blog Hop 3012 was born! We tried to impart useful information regarding this Jewish holiday …as well as keeping it fun. I think we each succeeded. It was also a way to get readers to our blogs. So thanks for the feedback. We always appreciate that.

      I didn’t see any “personal” type posts, so i’m just no sure where I can be of any help to you with an opinion. Good Luck with your work.
