Happy Hanukkah

We are a few days into the holiday this year, but I wanted to take a moment to wish all those of the faith a happy holiday.

And, for those not of the faith, to give a brief look at what the holiday is about and why its symbolically relevant to Freemasonry as it represents the re-dedication of the Temple in Jerusalem (Second Temple) after its desecration by the forces of the King of Syria Antiochus IV Epiphanes and commemorates the “miracle of the container of oil”.

The video is a bit on the juvenile side, but I think it tells the story well.  For a more “Historical” point of view, you can watch this video from the History Channel.

A devoted student of the Western Mystery Traditions, Greg is a firm believer in the Masonic connections to the Hermetic traditions of antiquity, its evolution through the ages and into its present configuration as the antecedent to all contemporary esoteric and occult traditions. He is a self-called searcher for that which was lost, a Hermetic Hermit and a believer in “that which is above is so too below.” Read more about Greg Stewart.
