The history of Hanukkah dates back to 422 BC, when Judea lost its independence. The invaders adhered to Hellenism, but were loyal to the faith of the Jewish people. With the coming to power in Syria of King Antiochus IV Epiphanes, religious transformations took place. All Jewish traditions were forbidden, including the Torah. The inhabitants of Judea could not give up their faith, and created free Jewish communities. The rebels defeated the punitive forces and liberated Jerusalem under the leadership of Maccabeus. The Jerusalem temple needed to be restored and re-consecrated. To carry out the ritual, it was necessary to light the fires using special olive oil. All the jugs of oil were desecrated, and only a small vessel was found. This amount of oil was not enough to burn the fire in the ritual lamp, but the priests lit the menorah. A miracle happened, the fire burned for all the prescribed 8 days. In memory of this, Hanukkah is celebrated annually in Israel with the obligatory lighting of fires.
