Member Shirley Ranz will tell us about the History of the Macabbees!

Beyond Hanukah: The Maccabeean Dynasty – Shirley Ranz

For 130 years the Hasmonean clan ruled ancient Israel, beginning with Mattathias and ending with Herod, which included an eighty-year period of Jewish sovereignty. How the successive generations of Maccabees ruled, and how their rule led to the Rabbinic form of Judaism, will be explored.

Followed by our Hanukkah tradition: Trivia game, led by Dan Wyman!
