We at the Forward have a burning passion for truth and a fierce love of Hanukkah. And, needless to say, no one can hold a candle to our reporting.
So to celebrate the miracle of the oil, we decided to put two traditional Hanukkah items that go great together, together. And we created — with the help of our incredibly talented production department (I can in all honesty say that no one is like Nikki Casey) and our friends at Tipsy Elves and Lord & Taylor — the human Hebrew hanukiah!
Every day we will “light” another candle and the hanukiah will beam refulgently from the top of our Facebook page. Who will be where? Who will wear which sweater? Who will be the central shammes ready to light the other candles? Visit the page to see the answers to these world-shattering questions — and “like” us (and our ridiculous effort) while you are there!
