Update: Weekly global religious, spiritual and nonreligious observance information

Submitted by Stefan Yates

The President's Committee on Religion, Spirituality and Nonreligious Diversity is adding an update to the global observance information for the week of Nov. 29-Dec. 5. The Hanukkah celebration began on Nov. 28, as previously announced in the Nov. 22 edition of the K-State Today. As it is an ongoing celebration, we would like to make sure that the observance is mentioned this week as well.

Nov. 28-Dec. 6 — Hanukkah An eight-day celebration during which Jews commemorate the victory of the Maccabees over the armies of Syria in 165 B.C.E. and the subsequent liberation and rededication of the Temple in Jerusalem.

The committee welcomes those of all global faith, spiritual and nonreligious worldview commitments.
