Hanukkah: What and Why do we Celebrate? (Full Version)

נר ראשון של חנוכה תשע"ט

What were Jews fighting for?

Who were they actually fighting against?
(Hint: Assimilated Jews, and foreign, governmental forces)

Why do we actually light candles during Hanukkah?

Where is the miracle of oil lasting longer than expected mentioned in Jewish texts?

Why is the miracle of the oil not mentioned in every textual reference to Hanukkah?

This is the full version Rabbi David Bar-Hayim's shi'ur on Hanukkah from last Tuesday.

The following is only a segment of the shi'ur, in case your time is limited, and want to get a sense of it first.
