There are several interesting articles in historical S.C. newspapers that describe the significance, and interesting history, of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. As you might know, S.C. has a long and proud Jewish heritage. Its first Jewish settlers immigrated to Charleston in the 1690s!
To search for yourself, try searching variations of the spelling of Hanukkah, like Hanukah or Chanukkah. Also try related items such as Feast of Lights or menorah. I limited my searches to historical S.C. newspapers, but you could try searching these terms by All States. To find more Jewish-related articles in Chronicling America: Historic American Newspapers, try searching terms like Jewish or Hebrew. Also, you may browse two historical Jewish newspapers digitized in Chronicling America, The Jewish South (Richmond, V.A.) and The Jewish Herald (Houston, T.X.). Happy Hanukkah One and All!
