Hanukkah Train hauls Santa Cruz’s biggest Festival of Lights celebration

Published Friday December 30

SANTA CRUZ >> As hundreds gathered to board the Hanukkah Train on Thu night at the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk platform, Rabbi Yochanan Friedman explained why the wintertime “festival of lights” is the most public of Jewish holidays.

“While Hanukkah celebrates a military victory and the triumph of right over might and the weak over the strong, it is really a celebration of spirituality,” Friedman said.

2 hundred years before the birth of Jesus Christ, a small band of faithful Jews, led by Judah the Maccabee, defeated the Syrian-Greeks, one of the mightiest armies on earth and drove them from the land.
