11/23/11 3 Hanukkah Hanukkah, known as the Festival of Lights, celebrates the victory of the Maccabees over King Antiochus of Syria, who wanted them to reject their religion and worship his gods. After the victory, the Maccabees wanted to rededicate the Jerusalem Temple, but could only find a tiny jug of oil, enough for a single day. They lit the lamp, and the tiny amount of oil stayed lit for eight days.
