Hanukkah Is In A Person

laitman_627_2Question: I started to read about Hanukkah, the war of the Maccabees against the Yavanas (the Greeks), and I don’t understand how to relate to what is happening to our world?

Answer: First you need to accept a condition: all that Kabbalah talks about is

1) What is happening in the spiritual world

2) What is happening inside one person

The war of the Maccabees with the Yavanas is a struggle between the forces of reception and bestowal in a person who is on the way to unite with the Creator. The one who doesn’t study Kabbalah, doesn’t feel internally any Maccabees, any Yavanas, no Pharaoh, and no other characters in the Torah. All of them appear in a person only when one properly studies Kabbalah.
