Why do we light a menorah? Because it represents a miracle.
In the second century, the Syrian-Greek army ransacked the Jewish Temple, leaving it in shambles. When the Jews were able to cleanse and re-dedicate the holy facility, they found only enough sacramental oil to re-light the menorah for one day. Although the Jews knew the menorah was supposed to burn all day, every day, and that it would take eight days until a new supply of oil could be made and brought to the Temple, they re-lit the menorah anyway. They were rewarded with a miracle: The small jar of oil burned for eight days. To publicize this miracle, Jews light a menorah/hanukiah every night for eight days.
