Hanukkah commemorates the victory of a small group of Jews over the Greek army in the second century BCE. After the Jews drove the Greeks out of their land, they attempted to restore their temple, which had been destroyed, only to discover that there was just enough oil to light the lamp that held the eternal flame for one day. A miracle occurred and the small amount of oil lasted for eight days, which was enough time to make new oil to light the flame.
