Porton MeeKatz The Maccabbees win it in he Ninth!

It was the world series of wars in the middle east
And to borow from Rabbi Beryl Wein
The Maccabees combined consistency with creativity
Beat he Greek warmongers and left the Egyptians far behind
Created a legacy of Holiness Despite Critics and Malingerers
Fought the Rabbis but gave them Respect and Room
To Forge the Mishna
ReDedicate the Temple
Teach the timeless Tora
And Save the Sabbafh
So lets celebrate
Make Kidush Lashem
Catch the rhyhm of Shabbat
Love and Shabos from Israel
Rabbi Andy Eichenholz
