Hanukkah Again

In today's New York Times, another way to look at Hanukkah from the author of The Finkler Question:
Hanukkah, Rekindled by Howard Jacobson
Hanukkah, Rekindled

Why it’s so hard to get excited about a holiday with the Hasmoneans.

Jacobson looks at things a little differently than I do (see my post from a few days ago, Happy Hanukkah!), but he's also wondering how the Maccabees can be heroes to Jews today.
