Happy Holidays: A Rare Hanukkah Celebration in Istanbul

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year!

We’ve taken a long break here at The Istanblog to focus on other projects. But we’re finally back, and we wanted to share a story with you to mark the holiday season.

Earlier this month, Istanbul’s small but active Jewish community held a rare celebration Hanukkah at a public ceremony downtown.

Check this report out from Medium, ‘We Are Noticed’: Turkish Jews Gather for a Rare, Public Celebration of Hanukkah, published on December 11.

Until next year!
