The Maccabian Fight The festival of Chanukah celebrates not only a military victory but an educational one too. Although little is made of it, it seems most likely to me that the Greek philosophy and religion had taken such a strong hold on the Jewish people in their land, that the first activities of the Maccabees was to make a civil war to stop by force any more Jews taking up Greek polytheism. Having created a powerful body of returners to our faith, they were then able go about fighting the Assyrians and finally that of dedication of the second temple. (But nobody wants to admit this degree of internal conflict and slaughter.) Reply

I think there should have been more questions relating to the defilement of the Temple by Antiochus Epiphanies' slaughtering a pig on the altar, and other pagan debaucheries that totally defiled the Temple.
Yes one cruze of oil lasting 8 days was a miracle, but what was its significance? That G_d declared the Temple cleansed.
The Maccabees' victory over better-equipped and more numerous Syrian armed forces was an astonishing miracle too.
These were not trained soldiers, but Jews who'd had enough of the moral decadence introduced by This Greek general, who was a type of the evil one to come soon...

All the rest is tinsel.... Reply

THE TEST I thought this test would be so easy. I missed 2, so I learned 2 new today. My Dad always told me that if a day goes by and you have not learned something new, that's a day you've wasted. Today is good day. Reply

I'm a gentile who began learning about Judaism around two years ago. I got 8 right and should have known one more. I love quizzes like this and so happy I know enough so far to have earned a respectable score. --Patricia Reply
