The Thinking Jew Podcast: Ep. 87 The “Real” Miracle of Chanukah
If you ask most people what the miracle of Chanuka was, they’ll most likely respond with the story of a small jug of pure oil burning in the Temple for 8 nights. After all, we light our menorahs for 8 nights to commemorate that miracle!
But, was that really the greatest miracle? Did a tiny small untrained Jewish army led by rabbis not defeat the mighty Greek Empire?
So what is the REAL miracle of Chanuka? What is our primary focus?
Join me as we look through Jewish sources to discover the answer to this question and walk away with a powerful lesson to carry with us into Chanuka!
