Rabbi Meir Soloveichik on Chanukah, The Triumph of Monotheism

Families on Hanukkah gather together and celebrate around dreidels, chocolate coins, and presents. Yet the holiday’s most profound meaning is in its core symbol and ritual: the lighting of the menorah. Rabbi Meir Soloveichik takes us through Hanukkah’s two pivotal historical stages, the age of the Temple and the age of Diaspora, teaching us about the triumph of monotheism and Judaism, and the lessons Hanukkah’s miracles hold for anyone who cares about Jewish survival.

    I am not sold on monotheism. Thor, Odin, Apollo, Zeus, Diana, the whole crowd, different names, different jurisdictions, all made sense. And the stories were great.
