What is Chanukah?

We all know that Chanukah isn't all playing dreidels and eating latkes - but what are the facts behind the festival?

 

    This is a great video for kids - and adults - who know the basics about Chanukah, but actually would like to know a little bit more. In less than four minutes the team from Bim Bam dispel some Chanukah myths, fill you in on the history of the Macabees and the oil and show you some pretty tasty-looking pictures of latkes and doughnuts.

    There are jokes, cartoons and facts - a must-watch video.
