A Brilliant Victory: 25 Kislev, 5741 • December 3, 1980

Chanukah celebrates the Jews’ battle for G‑d’s Torah to prevail. But the mitzvah which they established to immortalize their triumph—the kindling of the Chanukah menorah—sheds light on the true nature of “Jewish victory.”
Chanukah, Lubavitcher Rebbe
A Brilliant Victory
25 Kislev, 5741 • December 3, 1980
Disc 17, Program 68

Event Date: 25 Kislev 5741 - December 03, 1980

Chanukah celebrates the Jews’ battle for G‑d’s Torah to prevail. But the mitzvah which they established to immortalize their triumph—the kindling of the Chanukah menorah—sheds light on the true nature of “Jewish victory.”

The Jewish people do not conquer the negative influences of this world by brute force, but through illumination—by brightening the world with the wisdom and guidance of Torah and mitzvos.

Each day of Chanukah, an additional candle shines at the doorway of our homes, bringing greater and greater radiance to those inside and out. Every Jew must reflect the Chanukah candles by increasing Torah’s light in his own life and in the lives of those around him, every day.

I want to see the entire video!

Love the Rebbe and was getting a lot from his talk, but then the ad (Buy this DVD!) comes on and I can't read the subtitles with the ad over them. Then It switches to a different video before this one finishes. Grrr!

Now, is this what the Rebbe said to do? Cut off the end of his video? Is this what he would have wanted? Just asking. Reply

He speaks to the ages I just finished reading a historical description of the events before, during and after the Macabees, looking for a description of the miracle of Hanukkah. Everyone fighting everyone-murder, rape, pillage... Vey! The Rebbe cuts through history to tell us what's really important. Reply
