Judah Maccabee - Happy Hanukkah!

Somehow, somewhere, growing up I was told of the story of Hanukkah where Judah Maccabe defeated Assyrians who greatly out numbered him - AFTER- Momma Maccabe fed him and his troops (family) magical potato pancakes........when they cleaned out the Temple and found only enough oil for one day that lasted 8 all the success, etc. was attributed to GOD's define influence......great story - right? I still think it's the real one.......anyway, getting to the point:

  1. You were taught wrong the Maccabees didn't fight the Assyrians but rather the Greeks who ruled Syria at the time.

    The Assyrians had nothing to do with the story and these false rumors must be stopped.
