Festival

Hanukkah, also known as the Festival of Lights, is here. The eight-day winter “festival of lights,” began Sunday at sundown. Jews celebrate Hanukkah by lighting menorahs, telling the Hanukkah story, playing dreidel, and eating special foods.

While the holiday still looks a little different this year amid the coronavirus pandemic, there are still a handful of events happening around town to help you commemorate the holiday.

Here are a few ways to celebrate around Louisville:
