Many Jews consider the 8th night of Hanukkah as the most significant. It is during this night that Jews greet each other with “Gmar chatimah tovah,” or “may you be sealed totally for good.” Below are some tips to observe during Zot Hanukkah.
- All eight candles of the Menorah should shine brightly. Light the chanukiah using the shamash from right to left.
- Say the first two blessings. If the day occurs on a Shabbat, light the chanukiah candles before the Shabbat candles.
- This night is the culmination of the week-long celebration of Hanukkah. Discuss the significance of Hanukkah with family and friends. Enjoy a festive dinner with all your loved ones. The final night of Hanukkah is a time to rejoice.
- It is now part of contemporary Jewish custom to give gifts during Hanukkah. Give your kids presents and gelts (a small amount of cash). Giving tzedakah (charity) is also encouraged.
- Sing songs. Play traditional Hanukkah music.
