The Thinking Jew Podcast: Ep. 54 Uncovering Chanukah’s Deeper Meaning. By Rabbi Moshe Segal

Chanukah is often viewed as the holiday of lights in which we light the Menorah, eat oily foods and get presents, but is that all there is to Chanukah?

In this episode, we uncover the ideological underpinning of the Maccabean revolt against the great Greek army.  What did Ancient Greece stand for? What was the Jewish response?  How did the Maccabees win the spiritual war? 

Join me as we take a Kabbalistic perspective to discover the deeper meaning behind Chanukah!

Thank you to David and Erica Bashover for sponsoring this episode in honor of the birth of their son, Benjamin Eric Bashover!  May the Torah learning be a merit for him to grow up to be a holy Jew, full of kindness and Torah.  May he bring you and the world much joy and nachas!

Happy Listening!

Rabbi Moshe
