The Feast of Hanukkah, The Jewish Festival of Lights has a key relationship to the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, the Light of the World. The seven-candled menorah which is continuously lit by the "Pilot Light" in the center seems analogically, a prefigurement of the Spirit of God, the Tabernacle Candle that stays continuously lit in front of the Real Presence. Jesus entered the temple and proclaimed his Divinity for the first time during this winter feast. (John 10:22-39) The Jewish response, a rather violent reaction, was to try to STONE the True Light - The Son of God.
Read what an Orthodox Jew has to say about a physical link in light to the Hanukkah celebration, it may prove enlightening.
