Hanukkah or the Festival of Lights is a Jewish holiday celebrated for eight days and nights. In Hebrew, the word "Hanukkah" means "dedication," and unlike other date-specific holidays, it begins at sunset on a day between late November and late December depending on the Hewbrew calendar.

Hanukkah is a time of joy and family celebration, fun and tradition including many delicious foods. While the festivities can draw you away from your healthy lifestyle, it can also be a time to stay dedicated to them.

We create workout lists to help you keep your workouts fresh and to help you stay motivated as you work toward your goals. Members of our SparkJews SparkTeam offered some suggestions for inspirational songs to keep you moving throughout the holiday.
