The story of Chanukah actually involves two miracles. We all understand the miracle of the oil but there was also the miracle of the military victory which defied logic as well. Indeed, in our prayers, the miracle of the oil isn’t even mentioned.


One approach has it that while the miracle of the military victory was preeminent, the miracle of the oil was added to emphasize what the struggle was truly about, namely the concept of purity and impurity (tumah and taharah). Without ritual purity as a foundation of observance there is no distinction between Sabbath and weekday, kosher and unkosher etc. and thus there could be no edifice of the Torah lifestyle.


The miracle of the military victory allowed us to regain sovereignty of the land and the temple and preserved us to fight another day. The miracle of the oil, on the other hand, preserved our integrity as a holy nation, with God’s help. in perpetuity.
