We Were Not Mighty Heroes

A short idea for the Hanukkah Holiday (because I don’t have much time to write and you don’t have much time to read):

Perhaps more than any idea or explanation about Hanukkah, we should simply observe for a moment the words that we add to the prayers these days: “You delivered the mighty into the hands of the weak, the many into the hands of the few, the impure into the hands of the pure, the wicked into the hands of the righteous”. We are not ashamed to admit that we were not strong, impressive and mighty heroes. Thousands of years later, we remember that we won despite the fact that we were weak and few – and thanks to the fact that we were pure and righteous.
