WORLDWIDE -- Hanukkah has officially kicked off. The eight day holiday is marked by lighting candles on a menorah.

To kick off the Jewish holiday, menorah lighting ceremonies are held across the globe, including in Washington, D.C. and New York City.

Hanukkah is also known as the Festival of Lights and celebrates the re-dedication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
