The Jewish Community Center of Greater Pittsburgh is the place to be for Chanukah, with activities for all ages at the JCC in Squirrel Hill and the South Hills. The eight-day holiday, commemorating the rededication of the Jerusalem Temple by Judah the Maccabee around 164 B.C.E., begins at sundown on Sunday, December 6, 2015. Special activities include:
