Jewish community celebrates Hanukkah

Members of the Jewish community celebrates the fourth night of Hanukkah in a state that has one of the lowest Jewish populations in the country.

Hanukkah is the eight-day Jewish holiday of the re-dedication of the second temple in Jerusalem in the second century B.C.

A Rabbi came from Fargo Wednesday to help celebrate with prayers followed by a dinner with traditional potato pancakes and jelly filled doughnuts. Some of the children played with tops called Dreidels.

"Definitely the small amount of Jewish people in North Dakota is unique and highlights the importance of every individual" said Rabbi Yonah Grossman, North Dakota Chabad Rabbi.

According to an estimate by the U.S. census, there are approximately 400 Jewish people in the state of North Dakota.
