Tonight is the fifth night of Hanukkah. The story goes that back in the second century B.C., after the Jews re-conquered the temple in Jerusalem from Greek forces, there was only enough oil to last one night. That oil miraculously burned for eight nights, and that miracle is what Hanukkah is all about.
