The evening of December 7, 2004 marks thebeginning of Hanukkah, the Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Second Temple of Jerusalem in 164 B.C. Also referred to as the Feast of Lights, Hanukkah recalls the Talmudic story of the Temple's one-day supply of oil miraculously burning for eight days.

The Hebraic Section of the Library of Congress has long been recognized as one of the world's foremost centers for the study of Hebrew and Yiddish materials. Established in 1914 as part of the Division of Semitica and Oriental Literature, it grew from Jacob H. Schiff's 1912 gift of nearly 10,000 books and pamphlets from the private collection of a well-known bibliographer and bookseller Ephraim Deinard. The section houses works in Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino, Judeo-Persian, Judeo-Arabic, Aramaic, Syriac, Coptic, and Amharic. Holdings are especially strong in the areas of the Bible and rabbinics, liturgy, responsa, Jewish history, and Hebrew language and literature.

Chanukah Party: A Drama in 4 Acts was written in 1909 for theYiddish theater-- a uniquely American dramtic form that emerged in urban Eastern European Jewish communities during the early twentieth century. The work is one of seventy-seven Yiddish playscripts available online in American Variety Stage, 1870-1920.
