In this classic episode, Judy talks about real Hellenism, and lessons we can learn for today's society.

Are you familiar with the full Hanukkah story, and not just the kiddie version? Judy retells the story of Hanukkah and the Hellenism of the Jews of those days, juxtaposed with Hellenism of today. It's a story of politics and religion, and where some Jews went wrong.
Who are today's Syrian-Greek wannabees? What can we do to fight the Hellenism of today?
Plus: an analysis of John Lennon's song Imagine.
This was the very first episode of Life Lessons, and it is still requested for replay by teachers, history buffs and arm-chair political analysts.
Listen and learn!
