20 minutes

That’s the approximate time it takes for a menorah candle to burn out.

A Festival of Light gives new meaning to Hanukkah by celebrating 8 core human values — one for each night. But more than that, it creates a framework from which to fill those 20 minutes with meaningful and joyous conversations that will last a lifetime.

Take a look at some of the highlights in this 4-minute video below.
