Hanukkah, 2nd Edition shows how the Cohen family prepares holiday foods such as latkes (potato pancakes), participates in Hanukkah games such as "spin the dreidel" (top), lights the menorah (candelabra) and sings traditional Hanukkah songs during each day of the eight-day celebration. In addition, a beautiful animated section tells the Hanukkah story and explains why Hanukkah is often considered a celebration of religious freedom. Viewers see how the Jewish people in ancient times lived peacefully as farmers, shepherds and merchants until the rule of Antiochus IV, who demanded that they worship Greek gods. The revolt of the Maccabees is explained, and the miracle of the temple light burning for eight days is shown.
