I was walking down a street in Jeru­salem when I came to a sign: Queen Shalom-Zion Street. A Jewish queen who was not named Esther — and I had never heard of her! That’s how I met the unsung heroine of Chan­ukah.

The long version of the Chanukah story is not quite as heartwarming or morally clear-cut as what you might remember from Hebrew school. Ancient historical records, especially the little known Book of Maccabees, tell of a bitter and bloody internal conflict that pitted Jew against Jew in a fight for political and religious domination.
