As children, we learn that the hero of the Hanukkah story was the great warrior Judah Maccabee. But how many of us know the real history behind the tales we tell our kids?

In this special, limited-series podcast—available exclusively to MeirSoloveichik.com subscribers—Rabbi Soloveichik will uncover the fascinating military and political history behind the events of Hanukkah. He’ll explore the Hellenized Jewish world against which the Hasmoneans rebelled, the rise of Judah, the battles he fought, and what Jews today can learn from the military and religious vision of Judaism’s greatest general.
