Chanukah – A Search for peace
Poetry and Music By Andrew Pell

(Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday which celebrates the victory of Maccabaeus)

The Ancient Israelites led by Judas Maccabeus did vanquish the Oppressor.
The struggle was long and many lives were lost.
The conflict would last for 20 years.
Many died in the conflict, many tears were shed.
But the Israelites persevered for God was on their side.
Purity and Peace is what they fought for and what they wanted.
In God’s holy precepts did they always abide in and cherish.
They continued the struggle because they knew eventually the conflict would cease.
Chanukah is a search for purity and peace.
