Hanukkah Torah Study classes throughtout Houston. 

On the 25th of Kislev, we begin to celebrate the festival of Chanukah. Chanukah is one of the most beloved holidays among the Jewish people.

It is common knowledge that Chanukah commemorates the victory of the Jewish people over their Hellenistic oppressors and, in particular, the miracle that occurred in the Holy Temple: After the Greeks contaminated all the oil, a single cruse of uncontaminated olive oil was discovered, which in spite of its small size, miraculously produced enough oil to light the Menorah for eight days, the amount of time needed to press and ship ritually pure oil to the Temple. But what is the deeper meaning of the war with the Hellenists and the miracle of the oil and what impact can it have on our lives today so many years later?
