Estamos por comenzar #januca, la celebración de la victoria de los débiles contra los fuertes, de la santidad contra lo profano, de la luz contra la oscuridad. Pero: ¿cómo se cumple con el festejo? Sale #hilo con las leyes y costumbres de la fiesta de las luminarias.
La finalidad de la fiesta es recordar, agradecer y difundir los milagros que Dios hizo por el pueblo judío en su guerra y victoria contra el poderoso ejército griego y la reinauguración de Beit Hamikdash (pueden encontrar la historia completa en: ).
Al restaurar y consagrar nuevamente el Templo tras la profanación helénica, se encontró aceite apto para el encendido del candelabro pero solo suficiente para un día. Milagrosamente, alcanzó para ocho jornadas, tiempo necesario para la producción de nuevo óleo.

8 valuable #Hannukah history facts:

1. The war waged by the Maccabees was exclusively to repel religious suppression not to attain sovereignty. (Prayer Text)

2. The complete defeat of the Greeks happened many years after the #Hanukkah miracle. (Josephus)
3. The Maccabees never achieved full sovereignty in the Holy land they were just afforded autonomy under the Roman empire. Which they held on for over 200 years.

4. Their autonomy allowed them to run a Jewish theocracy which is the only purpose of a Jewish Kingdom and State.
5. Talmud unambiguously states that #Hanukkah was established because of the oil miracle. Not about war victories or sovereignty.

6. While we do praise God for the victories and we somewhat commemorate it, nonetheless for the war victories alone #Hannukah would not existed.
