Storyboard Text

  • Long, long ago in the country of Israel, the people lived happily and in peace.
  • One day, a Greek king names Antiochus rode in with his people and demanded that the citizens of Israel follow his rules and worship his Gods.
  • One man named Judah Maccabee didn't agree and wanted to worship their one unseen God. Therefore, he brought together an army.
  • The Maccabee army of hundreds fought against the Greek army of thousands. Against the odds, the people of israel won. This was the first Miracle of Channukah
  • Unfortunately, while the Greeks were in charge, they destroyed the Jews holy building, the temple, Judah Maccabee and his army went to rest inside but when they looked, their Menorah, a sacred candle, had run out of holy oil. Sadly, it would take 8 days to make more oil and there was only enough for one day.
  • The Jews lighted the menorah, thinking it would only last for that one day. Miraculously, the candles of the menorah stayed on for 8 days! Just enough days to make more oil. This was the second miracle of Channukah and Jews all around the world light a Menorah on Channu to remember the miracles.
