I think the Macabee brothers were very brave, fighting against the Greek soldiers .
I am pleased they won so the jewish people get to celebrate Hanukkah.

The Greek Soldiers were not very nice people. I'm glad the Maccabees stood up to them and won. (Although I would like to ride on an Elephant!)

Jewish people light the Menorah candle to give thanks for Gods love and the miracle he preformed for their people.
I would like to hear more stories about Gods love being shown to the Jewish people.

Why does the candle need oil ? I really enjoyed the story especially when the Macabees won the battle and put the candle back in the temple where it belonged.

I would like to know why the Jewish people light the candle at the synagogue for 8 days? From the video I learnt that the men that fought and won were called the Macabees.

I enjoyed watching the videos and learning about Judaism. The soldiers were mean. Do all religions have their own celebrations like the Hanikkah?
