Thank You! It is very very well done. I wish it was done in movie exactly the same way it is told in this audio. We need Maccabees to return today to fight for our faith and the right to be in Israel in pride and peace. It always stay true for all Jews to be united and to thank Hashem for all miracles....

A yearly Chanukkah favorite!!
This is a fantastic audio story! So enjoyable, I've listened to it every year for the past 4 years to help rededicate myself to the Creator, much like the Maccabees rededicated the Temple! This is fun and educational for children and adults alike. It is not entirely historically accurate, but it's pretty close. Just enjoy the story and you'll get what you need.
L'Chag Chanukkah Sameach!
To a rejoiceful Chanukkah celebration!
All bless the Almighty, the everlasting Eternal.

I want to weep
Whenever I hear this I have such a strong urge to weep. What an immeasurable debt we owe to G-d's chosen nation of faithful Jews for being willing to lay down their lives to preserve the precious Torah of Adonai. Baruch HaShem!

The Bible is not a mere collection of stories. Rather they are prophetically inspired works. The last generation of prophets were those who began to prophesy before the First Holy Temple was destroyed in 423 BCE, though a number of that generation survived the 70-year Babylonian exile and lived to see the building of the Second Temple. It was they who wrote the last books of the Bible, such as Ezra, and Chronicles.
The question remains, however, why there was virtually nothing written on it in the Talmudic work known as the Mishnah. Why was this? I suggest that you have a look at What Happened to Tractate Chanukah?
