Hanukkah is one of the most celebrated yet least understood holidays on the Jewish calendar. Beyond the fun of candles, latkes, and dreidels lies a complex story of cultural conflict and civil war that forever changed Jewish history. Join Rav Mike Feuer for a special FFT Webinar as we take a deeper look at Hanukkah and explore the past in hopes of better understanding the present and future. Have a question for Rav Mike? During the session we will be taking audience questions to guide the discussion.
To prepare for the webinar, feel free to check out some of Rav Mike’s previous Hanukkah podcasts:
