Summary: Commonly known as Hannukah, the Feast of Dedication
or Feast of Lights is a Jewish holiday observed for eight days commemorating the
cleansing and reconsecration of the Jewish temple in Jerusalem, by Judas Maccabee
and his brothers (165 BCE).
Now on the 25th of Kislev went Yeshua unto Jerusalem that he might attend the Feast
of Dedication, or as the Jews called, the Feast of Lights, for on that day did Judas
the Maccabee cleanse the temple of defilement.
