The dates for the Festival of Lights shift every year, so the 2012 edition of it starts today at sunset and runs through December 16 this year. Here are the Hanukkah dates for the next three years.:
2013: November 27-December 5
2014: December 16-24
2015: December 6-14
With the backdrop of conflict and drama once again ensnaring Israel, Syria, Palestine, Gaza, Egypt, Iran and other countries and territories in the region, we hope and pray as fellow travelers on this big planet we share that one of the things the Middle East gets to see during this holiday season is a lessening of tensions and eventually a lasting peace.
