As the Jewish nation prepares for what may shape up to be a most unusual Chanukah, when many of us will be isolated, celebrating at home without family and friends, we turn to you, our dear readers, to help us make the biggest Chanukah party ever.

Our celebration will stretch from your homes to ours, as we all share the warm glow of the Chanukah candles, and their eternal message of miracles, hope, and the triumph of lights over darkness.

As part of this effort, we are inviting you to share with us your story of a memorable Chanukah. It may be a memory from your childhood, the joy you experienced Celebrating Chanukah while traveling, or another powerful and moving experience.

The essays deemed very best by our editors will be published on our site and promoted on our homepage, emails, and social media.

Your submission must be:

  • original writing, never before published in print or online
  • true to the best of your knowledge
  • something you believe will encourage, entertain, educate or inspire our readers
  • Between 500 and 1,500 words
