Description
 
Tells children the origin of Hanukkah. Lighting the menorah, the special Hanukkah candleholder, is the most important part of the holiday. The book explains the miracle that happened more than 2,000 years ago in Judea, where the Jewish people built a Temple in Jerusalem. It held a lamp that was kept burning night & day with special oil. But King Antiochus forbid the Jews to worship the Lord. Mattathias & his 5 sons formed a rebel band called the Maccabees which defeated the army Antiochus sent against them. When they restored the Temple, the one remaining jug of oil miraculously kept the sacred lamp burning for 8 days! Ever since, Jewish families light the first candle on their menorahs & remember the rededication of the Temple. Illus.
