In line with the UAE’s efforts to normalize relations with the Zionist regime, the Jewish festival of lights “Hanukkah” was officially held in front of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai in the presence of Emirati authorities. A huge candlestick was erected in front of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai to mark the festival of lights.
According to Arabi21, Emirati authorities held the Jewish festival of lights “Hanukkah” in front of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai on Friday night.
A giant candlestick was set up in front of the Burj Khalifa for the festival of lights. Emirati authorities lit the candelabrum.
A group of Zionist settlers and Jews living in the UAE participated in the Festival of Lights. They took a commemorative photo next to the candlestick.
The Festival of Lights was organized by Levi Duchman, the rabbi of the United Arab Emirates. He had also organized the Jewish festival of lights “Hanukkah” in Dubai for the past six years.
The United Arab Emirates has normalized its relations with Israel under U.S. mediation. In September, the Zionist occupation regime and the UAE established diplomatic relations.
“Hanukkah” is the name of a festival that Jews around the world celebrate in winter. The Jewish festival calendar is based on the moon. Therefore, the date t varies each year. The festival of lights always starts on the 25th day of the month of Kislev. This year it began on the evening of December 10.
The festival commemorates three important events in the history of the Jewish people: the liberation from Greek domination, the second consecration of the Temple and a miracle of light.
“Hanukkah” is also called the “Festival of Lights” because of the important role played by an eight-branched candelabrum. And this is how it all began: Long ago, before the birth of Christ, the Greeks had occupied the land of Palestine. They ruled there and also determined which gods the people should worship: the gods of the Greeks. (AN)
