Remembering the Beginnings of Hanukkah
For 2013, the Hanukkah celebration period begins Wednesday evening, November 27th and ends Thursday evening, December 5th of the Hebrew month Kislev, December. This is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem after it was destroyed by the Syrians. It was in 168BC when Maccabee led a revolt against the Greek Syrians because of the edicts of Antiochus IV, the Syrian King, that were intended to eliminate the Jewish faith altogether. Included in his edits was to transform the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, Beit HaMikdash, to a Greek temple. However, the Jewish leader, Judah Maccabee, revolted by waging war for many years and eventually was victorious over the Syrians in 165BC, and reclaimed their temple.
Reclaiming and Cleaning the Holy Temple
After defeating the Syrians in battle and returning to Jerusalem, Maccabee and his army found the Temple in ruins, but the statue of Zeus Antiochus was still standing, and not even damaged. They promptly began cleaning the Temple, rebuilt the Jewish alter, and in 165BC, some three years after the statue was erected, the Temple and alter were rededicated to God. However, it was determined that there was not enough oil to light the N'er Tamid, which was an oil lamp found in Jewish houses of worship that represents eternal light. And, once lit, the N'er Tamid lamp should never be allowed to go out.
After an extensive search, a small vial of undefiled oil, sufficient for just one day. But, miraculously, the Temple lights burned continuously for eight days. In observance of this miracle, one candle of the Menorah is lit each of the eight days during Hanukkah. There are lots of opinions or theories as to why Hanukkah is celebrated over an eight-night period. One legend has it that when Judah and his believers entered the Temple there was just enough oil to burn for one night. However, strangely, the oil lasted for eight nights. Another belief has it that they found eight spears made from iron and put candles of each of them and used them for lighting in the Temple.
The dates for Christmas and Hanukkah could well be closely connected since 25 Kivlev was when the Temple was dedicated again, and the fact that the Church during those times chose December 25th because they adopted the birthday of the Greek God Zeus pr the Roman God, Jupiter.
