Celebs Tweet for Hanukkah

‘Tis the season to be tweeting. Celebs (Jewish and non-Jewish alike) took to the Twittersphere to send their Hanukkah greetings or to enlighten followers about the holiday. Here’s what some of them had to say in 140 characters or less:

President Barack Obama: From our family to everyone celebrating Hanukkah, Chag Sameach.

Lena Dunham: Happy Chanukah! Or, as we like to call it in my family, Hanukkah.

Joan Rivers: Why do we celebrate Hanukkah for eight days? Because it takes everyone that long to figure out how to spell it correctly.
