What is the miracle of Hanukkah?
You've got Hanukkah questions, On Faith has answers. Rabbi Brad Hirschfield answers your questions about the holiday:
Q) What is the miracle of Hanukkah?
The classic miracle story of Hanukkah is that of the oil which lasted longer than it should have -- eight days instead of one. Another possibility is that the miracle was that people dared to light that tiny bit of oil and trust that somehow things would work out. Perhaps the enduring miracle which Hanukkah celebrates is that there is always more light than we first imagine and that the fuel to create it is really there when look hard enough and dare to trust it's power.
