It’s 2015 — if you didn’t post it to social media, it didn’t happen. And Jewish holidays are no exception.

So, on this the festival of lights, Jewish celebrities and public figures from Jenna Jameson to Michael Bloomberg took to their feeds to wish their fans a Happy Hanukkah, and prove that their candles were indeed lit.
