The Messianic Jews are a group of believers who recognize that Yeshua -- Jesus -- is the promised Messiah of the Old Testament. They believe that Yeshua not only celebrated Hanukkah (John 10:22-23), but that He is present in its celebration still today.

The word “shamash” is translated as “helper” or “servant.” It also is the name assigned to the center candle of the Hanukkah Menorah (the Hanukkiah). This candle is lit first, and is then used to provide light to the remaining candles on each of the eight nights of the feast of Hanukkah. This is much the same way each of us receives our light from Adonai (the LORD), through the Messiah.

Additionally, the word shamash is used to describe the longest, most prominent thread in the tassels worn on the four corners of one’s garment or prayer shawl, as commanded in Numbers 15:37-41.

Hanukkah also is the time that many biblical scholars believe the Messiah was conceived. It is believed that His birth occurred during the Feast of Tabernacles, Sukkot, which occurs in autumn.
