"VeYivneh Yedid L'Yedid"- The Inspiration of Chanukah and the Chashmonaim

I'm going to repost a shiur from this time last year by Reb Yerachmiel, from the Baltimore Community Kollel Tefilla Chaburah for allowing us to host his latest shiur here at Dixie Yid for you to download."VeYivneh Yedid L'Yedid"- The Inspiration of Chanukah and the Chashmonaim. It discusses the yesod of "Yedidus" in the context of Chanukah, and draws upon gemaras and medroshim, as well as Torahs from the Ramban, the Chafetz Chaim, the current Slonimer Rebbe and Rav Avrohom Schorr, to show that the motivation of the Chashmonaim, the neis of Chanukah and the yesod of a true "Yedid Hashem" is yearning for Beis Hamikdash and the Geula Shleima.

the first candlesticks for channukah came from the holy fingers of god into Israel, "and they doth find my hand in gold, for I have given Yishrael my soul, and this represents my soul, light it in woe and we will have woe, so, light it in hope...."
