Why do we light Hanukah candles and what do they symbolize? We all know the story of the miraculous flask of oil that burned for eight days, but is that the whole story? In this special podcast for Hanukah, Rabbi Rahel Berkovits examines the section in Tractate Shabbat in which the laws of Hanukah are taught. Through an examination of the sources found there, we will try to understand what Chazal thought the Hanukah candles represent and which miracle we are publicizing.
