The Spirit Of The Chanukah Candles - And Their Lesson
From True Torah Jews

QUOTE
This week Jews celebrate the festival of Chanukah, to commemorate the miracles G-d made for them in ancient times. During the time of the Second Temple, the Jews overcame their enemies, who tried to force them to abandon the study of Torah and the practice of its commandments.

(The Zionists of today have made similar attempts.) With G-d's help, the Jews won out, and were able to continue keeping the commandments.

Afterwards, when the Kohanim (priests) entered the Temple to light the menorah, they found that all the oil had been defiled by their enemies. They found only one small jar of oil closed with the seal of the High Priest, enough for only one day. A miracle happened, and they lit with that oil for eight days, until they were able to make new oil.

When the Jewish Sages of that time established Chanukah, they enacted the lighting of the menorah, which reminds us of the second miracle. A mention of the miraculous wars was inserted into the prayers, but it seems that the Sages were concerned mainly with remembering the miracle of the oil.

The reason for this is explained in the holy books. The Sages foresaw that the Temple would eventually be destroyed and the Jews would go into exile. During the exile, Jews are forbidden to wage wars; they are adjured to wait peacefully until G-d brings the exile to a miraculous end. The Sages feared that if too much stress were put on the wars, Jews in exile might be led to consider the idea of war as a means to redeem themselves. Therefore they established the practice of lighting a menorah in every Jewish home, to stress the miracle of the menorah in the Temple.

Furthermore, the Sages intended the menorah itself as a reminder that the redemption from exile will come in a miraculous way, not through human effort. The source for this symbolism is in the book of the prophet Zechariah (4:6). Zechariah was shown a prophetic vision of a menorah. He asked an angel what the vision meant, and the angel replied, "This is the word of the L-rd to Zerubabel, saying: Not by might, and not by power, but by My spirit, said the L-rd of Hosts."

How bitterly ironic is it, then, that the Zionists have ignored the spirit of the candles, turning Chanukah into a celebration of the victories of the Maccabbees, and have taken as one of their national symbols a menorah, of all things ? the very menorah that symbolizes the opposite of their ideals!

Here's another view.

Those of us who have read the Talmud are aware that it is a hate filled racist handbook used by those who claim to be jews.

If you are unaware, I suggest that you read the Talmud and see how those who claim to be jews feel about you.

Rabbi - Hanukkah Significance Is Minor
By Rachel Leifer
The Hattiesburg American
Hattiesburg, Mississippi
12-28-5
QUOTE
The Talmud - a collection of Jewish philosophies, laws and traditions based on the Torah, or Scripture - contains an illustrative story about Hanukkah.

Seventy rabbis were discussing various Jewish festivals. They touched on the sabbath, the high holy days of Rosh Hashanah (the new year) and Yom Kippur (the day of atonement), Passover and Sukkot, a harvest celebration.

When their talk ended, one of the rabbis asked, "What about Hanukkah?" The 69 other religious scholars responded, "What is Hanukkah?"

The anecdote offers telling insight into Hanukkah's relative insignificance among Jewish holidays, said Hattiesburg Rabbi Celso Cukierkorn of Congregation B'Nai Israel.

"Hanukkah is not really important," said Cukierkorn. "It's a festival that became important in America because it coincides with Christmas."

The gift-giving and decorating widely thought of as central to Hanukkah, which commenced this year at sundown on Sunday, are American creations designed to make Jewish children feel included during Christmas, the most important Christian holiday, Cukierkorn said.

Neil Solomon said he strives to help his children understand the real meaning of Hanukkah. "Historically speaking, it's a holiday about a minority resisting assimilation into the majority culture," said Solomon, a physician who lives in Hattiesburg and teaches Hebrew school at B'Nai Israel. "And what's happened in this country to Hanukkah? It's been made into the Jewish Christmas - the opposite of what it's supposed to stand for."

To fight the misnomer in his own household, Solomon and his family don't make much of the holiday, reserving their energies for more religiously significant festivals like Yom Kippur and Passover.

Solomon said his four children don't feel they are missing out on much, though. "Their main problem is that they get bored during Christmas because all their friends are doing stuff with their families," he said.

"Hanukkah is more of a nationalistic, cultural holiday for Jews, and not so much religious," he said. "It was never meant to be a major holiday. Unfortunately because of commercialism and ridiculous political correctness, it's been assimilated into the pre-existing Christmas culture."

Indeed, the American Hanukkah is different from the Israeli version, which commemorates the triumph of the Jewish army, led by the Maccabee family, over Greek-Syrian leaders in 164 B.C. According to the country's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Hanukkah involves the lighting of a menorah and spinning of the dreidl (a four-sided top marked with Hebrew letters representing the message, "a great miracle occurred here"). Schools are closed for the eight-day festival, but workplaces remain open. It focuses primarily on restored sovereignty, a potent message for a country established as a Jewish homeland in 1945.

Because Hanukkah's parallels to Christmas in the modern American tradition, children have come to look forward to it, said Kevin Passer, another of B'Nai Israel's congregants.

"As a kid, it's sort of a big deal to get presents," said Passer, a psychiatrist at the Detox Clinic of Hattiesburg in Oak Grove. "Just like everyone else, they're hoping it's a toy instead of another sweater."

But Passer and others prize the more traditional Hanukkah customs as well - lighting the candles, spinning the dreidl and making potato pancakes called latkes.

Foods cooked in oil evoke Hanukkah symbols, explained Passer, who fried up several hundred latkes at the recent B'Nai Israel Hanukkah celebration.

The popular yarn about the miracle of the flask of oil - when a portion of the sacramental olive oil meant to keep the reclaimed Jewish temple's candelabrum lit for one day lasted for eight, hence the eight-day festival - is more symbolic than historical, said Cukierkorn.

"We did win a battle for our religious freedom," said Cukierkorn. "But we lost the war. The oil miracle was created as a metaphor for the soul of the Jewish people, or for any oppressed people."

Though the holiday gives Jewish families much appreciated time together, its significance in the religious calendar is minor.

"Hanukkah is hardly the be-all, end-all of Jewish holidays," said Solomon.
