In the spirit of teaching their kids new traditions, Camila and Matthew McConaughey used a menorah gifted from friend Guy Oseary. "Teaching and keeping the light!" Camila wrote alongside a photo of daughter Vida lighting their candles.
Grohl may not celebrate Hanukkah himself, but he is joining in on the fun with his producer Greg Kurstin, releasing a cover of a Jewish artist for each of the eight nights of Hanukkah. The duo is covering everything from Drake's "Hotline Bling" to Bob Dylan's "Rainy Day Women #12 & 35."
We're just sad that there are only eight days of Hanukkah — because we want more!

The celebrations continued with Teigen's son Miles helping Sussman light the menorah on the third night of Hanukkah.
Sussman — who has been sharing her Hanukkah traditions with Teigen's family — is also getting in the holiday spirit by supporting JASA, one of the largest agencies serving older adults in New York City. Sussman is taking part in an intergenerational cookbook as part of its JASAEats Campaign.

"Night 1 of Hanukkah 🕎Hopefully by night 8 I’ll have memorized the words," she wrote alongside her post.
She continued, "I love that @jbrwolfe & I are able to celebrate, respect and learn about each other’s religion. It’s such a blessing!"
"Happy Hannukholidays 🕎🎄💖," the Dancing with the Stars alumnus wrote alongside a photo of his kiddos, Beau and Cleo, lighting the menorah.

"Our dream of singing on a COUNTRY FOLK SONG with the one and only queen of storytelling, miss TAYLOR SWIFT is our second Hanukkah present to you," the band wrote on Instagram alongside a video of them all sitting around the menorah.
