Light Candles On The Menorah Virtually, Learn About Israel & Win A Free Trip!

Happy second day of Hanukkah!

Although we’ve already provided some of our favorite links filled with special activities and recipes for the Festival of LIghts, we forgot to include one that allows you to light the menorah virtually.

The Israel Ministry of Tourism has re-launched their popular Chanukah microsite where visitors can log on and light virtual candles for each night of the eight-day holiday, also known as the “Festival of Lights.”

The site went live yesterday and is a super fun spot for families! With each candle “lit,” visitors to the Chanukah website will be able to access more information about travel to Israel, with a particular focus this year on Israel’s diverse museums and major cultural institutions. And at the end of the holiday, site visitors who have lit all eight candles will be entered to win a free trip to Israel aboard EL AL Israel Airlines, to experience the country’s many areas of cultural, religious and historical interest for themselves.
