Max, at first Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights

2012-12-10 - Washington, DC - Photo From Grandmother. Mary Keltner, Gradyville, KY shares this photo of her handsome grandson Max' first Hanukkah, at its beginning on Saturday, December 8, 2012. Max was fascinated with the lights of the nine branched menorah. The tall Shamash is lit for light within the home, and each night of the eight day observance, an additional light on the menorah is lit. Grandmother Mary did not say how much Hanukkah gelt Max has received. His older cousin Molly is making all the season's parties she can. The Jewish community in their neighborhood frequently has one, two or more and evening. And when the family does go out, Molly insists on calling up someone to see if they are having one so she can go. She's so used to the foil wrapped chocolates of the season that she occasionally picks up a quarter and asks an adult to "peel."
