Chag #Hanukah Sameach!

In this time we celebrate Hanukah.  It is the rededication of the Temple and this is near and dear to me and my family’s hearts.  It is the story of the uprising of a people that fought against their oppression.

A little tid bit about Hanukah:

The Maccabees

Judah, son of Mattityahu, was called “Maccabee,” a word composed of the initial letters of the four Hebrew words Mi Kamocha Ba’eilim Hashem, “Who is like You, O G‑d.”  His name is famous and he is also known as the “Hammer” for his leadership and fearlessness in the revolt.
