Eventuais leitores da comunidade judaica,
Algum de vós me sabe dizer onde posso comprar um postal de boas festa (em Lisboa) cujo motivo seja a celebração do Hanukkah?
O melhor que arranjo é o belo postal na net
Gostaria de poder retribuir os votos que recebi de uns amigos e ainda não encontrei nada além de meninos jesus (convenhamos que poderia ser ofensivo) e bonecos de neve…

Hanukkah is a holiday celebrated by Jewish people every year between the end of November and the end of December. It begins on the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev, a date which varies from year to year on the Western calendar. Hanukkah is an eight-day celebration commemorating a miracle that occurred in Jerusalem in 165 B.C. That year, a small group of Jews known as the Maccabees (which means “hammer”) fought for and successfully won religious freedom from the oppressive Syrians. During the rededication of the Jerusalem Temple, there was only enough oil to light the N’er Tamid, or eternal light, for one night. By some miracle, however, the sacred lamp burned for eight days. Thus, Hanukkah has come to signify a triumph of a people with a burning determination to preserve its identity. Hanukkah, in fact, means “dedication” in Hebrew and is also known as the “Feast of Dedication” in addition to the “Feast (or Festival) of Lights.”
