Around 165 B.C.E. Palestine was ruled by the King of Syria, Antiochus. This King commanded that idols be placed in the Temple and that all Jews be forced to worship these g*ds. Many Jews yearned for the day when they would once more be free to practice their religion and observe their own customs.



In the town of Modin lived a brave leader, Mattathias. He and his five sons rebelled against the Syrians. Of his sons, we remember Judah the best. He was called Judah the Maccabee because he was so strong and fearless. ("Maccabee" means hammer in Hebrew). Soon, all of the Jews who followed Judah became known as the Maccabees. The Maccabees bravely fought the Syrian army and at last drove their enemies from the land of Palestine......
