Let My People Know

Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz: “More than our survival.”

On Chanukah, then as now, we struggle not for our independence, but for our selfhood.

Our victory in war more than two thousand years ago entailed more than our survival.

We are not just a race that survives, but a complete spiritual entity called “Judaism,” which continues to pulsate with life.

–Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz
