What Really Happened on Hanukkah? with David Biale

Thursday, December 15, 7:00-8:30pm | Hybrid (OMJCC and Zoom)  Fall

Why do we celebrate eight days of Hanukkah? The answer turns out to be more complicated than what we learned as children. We will also be surprised at how little the rabbis of the Talmud themselves understood about Hanukkah, which is the only holiday Jews celebrate that is not mentioned in the Bible.
