on Mattahias, a priest of the order

Judas took the field with" a small
army and after his first battle with
the Syrians he was hailed as th«
greatest hero in Israel's history
after David. Four great battles
were foungh in rapid succesßlon
and with a few thousand followers
Judas defeated four i;r at Syrian
armies of hundreds of thousands of
trained soldiers. On Klslev 25th, 16?

Jewish worship In the temple,
which had been discontinued fbr
three years. *
The Jewish Bible, In relating the
story of the rededlcatlon of the
temple and Its cleansing after the
worship of idols in the holy of
holies, tells of the discovery of a
small quantity of oil which under
ordinary clroumstances would last
only a short time. The oil was
poured in the lamp in which burns
the perpetual light and the lamp
continued to shed its rays for eightl
days until other oil could be se
sured and consecrated.
Judas, although he bore no title,
was after those battles the head of
the Jew, and following up his vic
tories over the Syrians he made.
war against all the former enemleal
of Israel, defeating in turn the TSd
omltes, the Ammonites, the Arabs
and other peoples, conquering them
one after the other. A year later
Lyslas, a Syrian general, invaded
Judea with an army of 100,000, but
the army was compelled to retire
and Syria finally acknowledged the
religious liberty of the Jews.
To commemorate the victories
and the miraclo of the oil, the
Feast of Lights Is celebrated for a
period of eight days. In orthodox
Jewish homes candles are lighted.
One wax taper the first night, two
the second and so on until the
eighth night, when eight tapers are
lighted Those candles are usually
placed near a window where the
people on the street -nay see them,
"to publish the miracle."
The prayer at lighting these
candles is simple and is as follows:
"Blessed be Thou, I Lord our God,
King of the world, Who didst work
miracles for our fathers in the days
of this season."

Maccabeus by a young Jewish-
American sculptor, Max Kallsh.
