Summary
Teach courage, integrity, and other positive character traits through lives of the Maccabees. Journey to Palestine of the second century B.C., where Antiochus, a Syrian-Greek king, rules over the people of Israel, confronting them with a trying test of their faith. They must bow down and accept the Greek gods-- or die! Some submit, but not the Maccabees, a small group true to the faith of their fathers. The spirit and determination of the Maccabees lives today in the celebration of Hanukkah, the Feast of Lights
