Is this holiday for me too?
Light the Menorah! See what G~d has done
Chanukah is considered a “minor” holiday in Judaism, though it has grown in importance because of the similar timing with the christian holiday of Christmas.
It is a time to remember “A Great Miracle Happened Here” that is, in Jerusalem, over 2000 years ago. The Jews defeated the Greeks in a series of battles. The Greeks were in the process of forced Helenization of the Jewish people, and G~d came to the rescue, through the Maccabee family leadership.
