Hanukkah: A Key to Understanding Rabbinic Judaism

Hosted By: My Jewish Learning

Watch the recording here:

In this My Jewish Learning class with Rabbi Aryeh Bernstein, explore laws and traditions of Hanukkah to better understand not only the holiday, but also what Rabbinic Judaism is all about. The Hanukkah celebration, one of American Jewry’s most widely observed Jewish practices, is not derived from the Bible, which was completed long before the time of the Maccabees, but instead from the Rabbis, who wrote down and codified the Oral Torah. The Rabbis even give some clues that Hanukkah is the ultimate Rabbinic mitzvah. Learn why the Rabbis considered Hanukkah so important, and understand how the holiday exemplifies the goals of Rabbinic Judaism overall.
