The last day of Hanukkah also known as Zot Hanukkah is considered by some Jews as the most significant. Here’s how you can celebrate the eighth night of Hanukkah:

  • Light all eight candles on the last night of Hanukkah. Light the candles from right to left.
  • Say the two Hanukkah blessings.
  • Discuss the significance of celebrating the last night of Hanukkah. It doesn’t matter if you are not Hassidic or Kabbalist. Teachings of Kabbalah and Hasidism explain that Zot Hanukkah is a day to repent similar to Yom Kippur celebration.
  • Give gifts to your loved ones and give kids chocolate gelt.
  • Give to charity during the last day of Hanukkah. It is still best to end the holiday knowing that you have done something good for other people.
