For those of you who celebrate Hanukkah, you know it begins this evening. While giving gifts as part of the Hanukkah celebration isn't universal or originally part of the Jewish holiday, there are many Jewish children who receive a gift for each of the eight nights.

If you are planning on gift-giving this Hanukkah, I hope you'll consider giving a donation to Heifer. The gift of a sheep, goat, fish fingerlings, bees or tree seedlings could make a great Hanukkah gift for your loved ones.

Happy Hanukkah!
