A modern maccabee

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/opinion/article/a_modern_maccabee

For those of us unfamiliar with the story of Hannukah, our ancestors, the Maccabees, were living in Eretz Israel under the reign of the Selucids - a might empire that, at its peak, stretched from the rolling hills of Central Turkey to the fertile plains of Northwest India.
