5 c- THE EUCLID AVENUE TEMPLE Page l"ive IT'S A HOLIDAY! IT'S A BIRTHDAY! (!)UII. IO:l.n.J.,(/n.n.ual MeeiiHfj ;0.1...the eo.~9'le9aiton and on SUNDAY, DECEMBER 26th, 8:15 P. M. The ~ntire Family Will Enjoy the Lighting of the First Candle; the Chanukah Pageant-Concert by the Choir; the Reception in Honor of Our New Members. Marvin Laronge, Chairman QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT CHANUKAH Q. What does the word Chanukah mean? A. Dedication. Q. Why was the holiday given this name? A. Because it commemorates the rededication of the Temple after its pollution by the Syrians. Q. Which Syrians? A. The forces of King Antiochu& Epiphanes. Q. Who was he? A. He was the heir to one-third of the kingdom of Alexander the Great. Q. What was the reason for his hostility to the Jews? A. Their refusal to adopt the Greek religion and way of life. Q. Why did a Syrian insist upon the impostion of a Greek way of life? A. Although Syrian by nationality, Antiochus had been Grecianized. Greek culture in his day had descended from its lofty Platonic idealism and had become deeade.nt, and what Antiochus demanded of the Jews was an abandonment of monotheism in favor of idolatry. Q. Were the Jews able to resist the forces of Antiochus? A. Miracuously enough, yes. But only after a long period of guerilla warfare. Q. Who led the Jewish resistance? A. The insipration came from a religious group known as the Chasidim. Q. Who were they? A. They were ardent devotees of Judaism who were the forerunners of the Talmudic Pharisees. Q. Did they carryon the warfare? A. No. The military leaders were five brothers known as the Maccabees and their father, Mattathias the Hasmonean. Q. What does Maccabee mean? A. The origin of the word is not certain. Some believe it means "hammer"; others believe that the word is made up of the initials of the prayer: Mi Chaw-mo-chaw Bawaylim Adonoy, "Who is like unto Thee, 0 Lord, among the mighty?" Q. What were the names of these brothers? A. The best known of them was Judah. The others were: Simon, Eliezer, Jonathan and Jochanan. Q. Where are these events recorded? A. In the Books of the Maccabees of the Apocrypha. Q. What is that? A. The Apocrypha is a collection of religious books assembled or written after the Bible was completed. Q. When did these events take place? A. About 170 years before the Christian era. Q. Why is Chanukah such an important holiday? A. Because it commemorates the first struggle on behalf of religious freedom. It enshrined the doctrine of national independence, w\tich later ins pired the Greeks themselves when they fought for freedom from Turkish rule. The Chanukah story certainly set the pattern for the American revolt against British tryranny. (Continued on Page 6)

6 Page Six THE EUCLID AVENUE TEMPLE QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT CHANUKAH (Continued from Page 5) Q. How long is the Chanukah holiday? A. It lasts 8 days. Q. Why? A. Because of a legend that at the rededication of the Temple, a cruse of oil for the eternal light, seemingly sufficient for one day, lasted for eight. Q. Do you believe this? A. Whether it happened or not, there is no doubt that the resources of the Judeans, seemingly sufficient for a short period, endured for years, because of the courageous idealism of the Maccabees. That is the real Chanukah miracle. Q. And how is the holiday celebrated? A. By the lighting of the candles, beginning with one candle on the first night and an additional one on each successive night; the recitation of s pecial blessings ; the singing of "Rock of Ages"; and the exchange of gifts. Q. Why is an additional light lit each night? A. To signify the growing strength that a good cause attracts when it is courageously defended. Q. Is Chanukah correctly termed " The Jewish Christmas"? A. The two holidays have different historical backgrounds. But they may be related pre-historically, since it seems that festivals associated with light prevailed amongst most ancient peoples during the winter season. Q. When does Chanukah begin this year? A. The first light is lit Sunday night, December 26th, corresponding to the 25th day of the Hebrew month of Kislev. Q. Is there any food associated with Chanukah? A. Yes. The Latke (potato pancake). Q: Why? A. Nobody knows. Q. Is there any other practice connected with Chanukah? A. Yes-the playing of the Draydel, a top which is a sort of "put and take" device. Q. How do you play it? A. Ask your nearest rabbi. Q. Why is a game of chance played on a Jewish holiday? A. To recall the fact that those who fight for freedom take many chances. Witness the mooern Maccabean struggle in Palestine. SUGGESTED BOOK GIFTS FOR CHANUKAH (Continued from Page 2) HISTORY Friedman, Lee M. '''Pilgrims in a New Land."
