Avrush is a Hebrew name that means “light” or “brightness”. This name has cultural significance within Jewish culture as it is associated with Hanukkah, which is a holiday that celebrates the miracle of light. The Torah tells the story of how a small amount of oil kept a lamp lit for eight days during the rededication of the temple in Jerusalem, and this event is celebrated during Hanukkah by lighting a menorah. Avrush is often given to Jewish boys as a symbol of hope and light in the world. The name has evolved over time as it became more popular within Jewish culture, but it has maintained its cultural significance.
