Hanukkah, wondering what this holiday is? During Hanukkah, on each of the eight nights that Hanukkah is celebrated on, a candle is lit in a special menorah (candelabra) called a Hanukkiyah. There is a special ninth candle called the shammash or servant candle which is used to light the other candles. The Shammash, is often in the center of the other candles and has a higher position. On the first night one candle is lit, on the second night, two are lit until all the candles are lit on the eighth and final night of the festival.
An example of this is how Venice forced them to live in Jewish Ghettos. On March 29, 1516, the first Jewish Ghetto was created in Venice. It was one of the first places where people were forcibly segregated because of their religious difference (Laskin). The Ghetto still stands for more than 500 years now, but it is uninhabited. However, unlike England in the late 1200’s, Venice partially accepted the Jews, even if it was by ghettoizing them (Worrall).
It is the most Indiana Jones sort of all the other locations after all they use this location in the movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark”.

He carried off treasures of the temple of the Lord and the treasures of the royal palace. He took everything, including all the gold shields Solomon had made".

In an attempt to cheer Solomon up, Sofia, his wife’s friend, introduced Frieda to Solomon. With a love for one another, Solomon and Frieda got married on November 1946 and moved to New Orleans with their 1-year-old son during that time. Solomon had decided to work in the fur business once again and soon raised enough money to educate his children. Living his life each day, Solomon died at the age of 92 in August 2002, with a family by his side. In an interview, Solomon had once said about how he felt in the camps, “How did I survive?
As a younger child, I felt like being Jewish was nothing out of the ordinary. I attended a Jewish preschool and grew up in a fairly Jewish area where the people around me were familiar with Jewish customs and traditions, even if they, themselves were not Jewish. For the most part, wherever there were Christmas decorations on display, there were Hanukkah decorations as well. As I have gotten older, I have come to understand that it is not unusual for Jewish children to feel alienated during the holiday season for not celebrating Christmas, and I too have come to experience the same alienation. Starting in September, stores are flooded with all things Christmas.

It was then after that word had spread hastily throughout the land and Nabopolassar appeared to declare himself the first king of the Neo-Babylonian Empire.
The Boycott, Divest, and Sanction (BDS) Movement has been widely popular across campuses in the United States, but the campaign reflects a larger international movement to help change the conditions of occupation and colonization in Palestine. Started in 2005 to create pressure on Israeli governments to decolonize Palestinian land and give Palestinians full citizen rights, the movement has gained significant support from churches, institutions, and governments. While the campaign has been successful, it is not unflawed. Its crippling mistake is that it does not fully endorse a two-state solution. Creating two distinct states is the only peaceful and democratic solution; those who support a one-state solution are living a utopian dream.
Throughout the existence of the Jewish faith, Hebrews/Jews have experienced many obstacles, which they have all overcome. Persecution and perseverance are two themes that occur throughout the history of the religion. These two themes play a role in the importance of history to Jewish people, show similarities to other races and religions, draw opinions and emotions of people and uncover a clear moral message within their faith.
