Here is a short thread as we light the candles for the fifth night of #Chanukah πŸ•Ž called 'The third miracle'. Chanukah sameach! πŸ₯³

But there was a third miracle not many people know about. It took place several centuries later.

It was one of the two great assaults on our people and faith in the twentieth century. The Germans sought to kill Jews; the Russians tried to kill Judaism. Under Stalin the assault became brutal.

True meaning of #Chanukah revolt of the Maccabees and slaughter of the Goyim.

Silly evangelicals putting menorahs in their window is not a sign of coexisting but submission.
Miracle oil, hmm
