Judaism: The Hidden Story of Hanukkah
Chief Rabbi Lord SacksRabbi Dr. Sacks was Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth 199-2013 and a member of the House of Lords since 2009. He has authored many books on Judaic thought, appears regularly in the British media and has kindly allowed us to post his essay on the Sabbath Torah reading each week as well as other sermons.
The Chief Rabbi recently delivered a keynote address on the holiday. During his talk, the Chief Rabbi argued that the lessons of Chanukah are as relevant to us in the 21st century as they was to the Maccabees thousands of years ago
