[1] Chanukah is sundown December 10 to sundown December 18. Since Chanukah is the Feast of Dedication (or Rededication) of the Temple, the customary reading is Numbers 7:1-8:4 (read in portions over the eight days of the feast), which tells of Israel’s offerings at the dedication of the Tabernacle. December 12, the Shabbat during Chanukah, has a special reading from Zechariah 2:10-4:7, the prophet’s vision of the menorah in the heavenly Temple. Also, it is customary in synagogues to read Numbers 7:1-8:4 in portions over all eight days. This passage relates the dedication of the altar in the Tabernacle.
