Tonight: Beyond dreidels. A real look at the history of the Maccabean Revolt

Judas Maccabeaus (16th c. engraving by Harmen Muller)

Tonight at YILC: a deeper discussion of the Maccabean Revolt, from Antiochus’ inferiority complex to fissures between Jewish factions under Yehudah Maccabee’s role. Surprisingly (or not surprisingly) relevant issues for our own times.

What else are you doing tonight? Join us at the Young Israel of Lawrence-Cedarhurst at 7:30 for a timely talk on Chanukah. Free and open to the community.

    It was very special to read your answers to Sholom Light in the interview published in the Jewish Action. We have been following you first in Surfside, Florida and now in Cedarhurst. May you have continued success

    1. Thank you!

    I’m eager to learn more about a war which, I believe you said, pitted Jew against Jew. I look forward to hearing “history as it actually was” instead of the saccharin-laced stories I grew up with.
