Hanukkah, (also known as the Festival of Lights and Feast of Dedication), is an eight-day Jewish holiday commemorating the rededication of the Holy Temple (the Second Temple) in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt of the 2nd century BCE. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days, starting on the 25th day of Kislev according to the Hebrew calendar, which may occur at any time from late November to late December in the Gregorian calendar.
Hanukkah often takes place around the same day of Christmas on December 25th.
- Kitty Pryde is lighting a menorah for Hanukkah, as her parents watch in On Angel's Wings.
- Though it is never said on-screen Magneto is also Jewish and is seen being rescued by Captain America and a younger Wolverine in WW II in Operation: Rebirth. This would make his children, Pietro Maximoff and Wanda Maximoff Jewish as well.
- Charles Xavier's ex-wife, Gabrielle Haller is Jewish, and their child David Haller.
- Bobby Drake is also Jewish, as seen in the Comics.
