Taught by Rabbi Shira Gluck

The events of the 2nd century BCE in Judea, as commemorated in the holiday of Hanukkah, are steeped in political and cultural turmoil both internal and external. The Maccabees rebelled against the Seleucid Empire after Jewish religious practice was proscribed. But their Hasmonean dynasty later waged a civil war against Hellenized Jews. Join us in examining Hanukkah as a struggle for identity and its resonance for Reform Jews in the modern world.
