The story of Chanukah is about the miracle of the Maccabees and the fight to protect our Jewish Homeland from those who would invade, harm, and desecrate it. At no time in recent history does this story resonate more – and this year, we know that with hope, dedication, and faith, the Jewish people will once again find the courage to defend our future, as we mark 2 months since the horrific attacks by Hamas on October 7.
