Hanukkah Story and Party Ideas
The word Hanukkah is Hebrew for dedication. Hanukkah is a holiday celebrated to commemorate rededication of holy temple in Jerusalem in 165BCE after Maccabees, a group of Jewish fighters, victory over Hellenist Syrians. This was a big deal because Antiochus, Greek King of Syria, had outlawed all Jewish rituals. Antiochus also made Jewish people worship Greek Gods. When Temple was being rededicated there was only enough oil to light temple lamps for one evening. Instead there was a miracle and temple lights stayed lit for eight nights until more oil was found. Because of this miracle Hanukkah is known as festival of lights and it is celebrated for eight days and nights, same amount of time temple lights stayed lit. Oil is a reoccurring theme in Hanukkah celebration due to lamp oil.
Foods fried in vegetable oil like Latkes and Sufganiyots, are traditional ways to celebrate at a Hanukkah Party. Latkes are potato pancakes made from grated potatoes, onions, eggs, and flour that are fried in vegetable oil and served hot with applesauce and sour cream. Sufganiyots are basically jelly doughnuts with no holes, also fried in vegetable oil, and covered with powdered sugar or cinnamon.

Using a technology is far easier than to develop it. For developing a technology, it needed high skill teams which have a high knowledge for theme. It also needed a high amount of time and also money. To fulfill all these, there must be technical institutes which must cover all faculties of technological studies and also support of government to support financially & to make it at international level. If it would be at International level then it would be easier to students to acquire knowledge in their own state so that they could do something for their own country.
