The true miracle of the war was simply the way it began. Good intelligence, foresight and planning allowed for the Israeli army to carry out a pre-emptive strike on the enormous enemy forces. The timing had to be right.

Chanukah is the only Jewish holiday that commemorates an ancient national liberation struggle in the Land of Israel, particularly Judea and Samaria.

You may be familiar with the classic show and film Rock of Ages, but how about the Chanukah Jewish Rock of Ages? You don't want to miss this one!

Was the Chanukah miracle a seven-day or an eight-day occurrence? Why is the holiday celebrated for eight days rather than seven? There's a wealth of discussion on this topic.
