The two Books of Maccabees (Sifrei Maccabim) are the only ancient source that provide a full telling of the events that led to the Chanukah victory over the Greeks. This is the first English translation that is true to the original Hebrew text. Here you will find the authentic words and deeds of Mattisyahu and Yehuda Maccabee, the passion of their faith, their incredible heroism and the evil of their Greek oppressors. Here is a taste of Chanukah that you never savored before.
