Chanukah – Post September 11th




Chanukah – Post September 11th

The story of Chanukah commemorates the Jewish People’s triumphant retrieval of the Holy Temple from the Hellenists. When they went to light the ritual flame, they found that they only had enough oil to burn for one day. They lit the oil lamp anyway, and miraculously the one-day supply burned for eight days!
