Thanks for the article, "WNC's small Jewish community to celebrate festival of lights," (AC-T, Dec. 8) about Chanukah. Thanks so much for taking time out to highlight this important holiday for our Jewish community. Perhaps, in the future, you might want to re-word dates when talking about a Jewish event. The Maccabee revolt happened in 165 B.C.E. (Before Common Era) to those it matters most to; saying 165 B.C. (Before Christ) is a bit of a smack in the face.
