Festival of Lights

save list
Hanukkah amidst the throngs of Israelis on vacation during this holy week left me enamored of the holiday but unimpressed by the festival. Still, I can recommend Israel - especially Jerusalem - as a place to experience one of the reverential Festival of Lights, especially if you have Israeli friends with whom you can share a Hanukkah dinner and candle-lighting. But, if you’re looking for a pilgrimage, party, or pageant full of revelry or beauty, find another festival.
