The Jewish Hanukkah is widely celebrated in Tirana and Pristina

HANUKKAH is celebrated in commemoration of the Maccabees' victory over the Greek-Syrian army, and the subsequent miracle of the rebuilding of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem and the restoration of its Menorah. The word "Hanukkah" means "Dedication".

It is held for eight nights and days, beginning on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which can occur at any time from the end of November to the end of December in the Gregorian calendar. The festival takes place by lighting the candles of a candlestick with nine branches, called menorah (or hanukkiah). One branch is usually placed above or below the others and its candle is used to light the other eight candles.
