Description:

Hanukkah: An eight day Jewish festival of lights that commemorates the victory of the Maccabees over the Syrians.

Reflection: The miracle, of course, was not that the oil for the sacred light -
in a little cruse - lasted as long as they say; but that the courage of the Maccabees lasted to this day: let that nourish my flickering spirit.” – Charles Reznikoff, "Meditations on the Fall and Winter Holidays"
