Brenda as a Maccabee

Maccabees were a family that lived around 170-160 B.C. that resisted the Syrian dictator Anitochus as he took over the Jewish temple in 171-164 B.C.

The Maccabees with their father Mattitias gathered a small army to fight against the Syrians who were occupying the Temple. Mattatias with his five sons  Judah, John, Simon, Eliazer, and Jonathan began to fight.

When Mattatias fell ill and died, the leadership went to his son Judah who then led the army. Maccabeus meant “the hammerer.” In the days of Rebellion Judas recieved this name maccabee. Judah as their leader led an unskilled commando army of only a few thousand. The Jews fought in the hills and defeated 20,000 Syrians. News of the defeat preceded them so when they came to the temple it left empty. They cleansed the Temple and rededicated it, they made a new menorah and restored it to its proper use.

Judah Maccabee became a popular hero, a symbol of religious freedom and Israel’s national liberation. The hero of Hanukkah is considered a symbol of a military victory over great odds.
