Tonight is a special night. Tonight is the first night of Chanukah, the Jewish Holiday celebrating the victory of a handful of religious scholars, men who stood fast in their religious and moral convictions, who stood up to an oppressive superpower and were ultimately victorious. These men were family men, they were scholars, they were priests. They were not warriors. But they had something worth living for, something worth dieing for: their beliefs, their freedom, their religion. Together, a handful of men overthrew the world superpower. Historically this wasthe firstwar fought over moral imperative.
