We tend to focus on the Miracle of the Oil, that lasted for eight days. But what really was the miracle of the Battles?
An additional presentation is available for schools and communities. Exploring the battles of the Maccabees with an in-depth understanding of the terrain, and recent archaeological discoveries which shed a new light on the story.
Below: Slideshow of pictures from the three publics tours on Sunday-Tuesday December 17-19, and a collage from Battles of Judah Maccabee in 7th grade girls at Barkai Yeshivah, Brooklyn (due to student privacy, photos of the activity were only posted on the school’s private social media)
