Chanukah Candles, the Burning Bush and the Jewish People

Hosted By: Orange County Community Scholar Program (CSP)

The origins, as well as the meaning, of the post-biblical holiday of Chanukah are hard to pinpoint. In an attempt to shed light on the holiday and to understand its contemporary relevance, we will compare the Chanukah story to another story of a flame that burns but does not extinguish: the biblical story of Moses at the burning bush.

This event is at 10 AM PT and 1 PM ET.
