Gush Etzion & the Chanukah Story

On Chanukah, Jews throughout the world celebrate two completely separate miracles - the miracle of the little jar of pure oil found in the Holy Temple by the Chashmonaim; and the military victory of the small against the many, the weak against the mighty super-power.
Just wanted to remind everyone that a good portion of Chanukah's military victory took place outside Bet HaMikdash (the Holy Temple) - right here in Gush Etzion.
When you sing "Maoz Tzur" tonight and your candles burn brightly at your door post or in your living room windows, please think of Gush Etzion and the Chanukah miracle.
Happy Chanukah.
