The story of Hanukkah is about miracles: the miracle of a few people triumphing over great odds for the right to practice their religious beliefs.  The Maccabees wouldn’t give up, even though they were outnumbered.  They felt the spirit of God inside them and it gave them special strength.  This miracle is something inside everyone, the spirit to choose what a we believe is right, no matter how hard or dangerous that may be.

 

We’ll find similarities between the Hanukkah story and a Jewish folktale from Algeria, “The Sabbath Lion,” looking for miracles, exploring the power of faith, the importance of keeping a promise and of never giving up.
