How does the story of Yehudit (Judith) connect to Chanukah, if it wasn't from the time of the Greeks? And if her victory related to war, why does it lead the gemara to mandate that women light menorah, which commemorates the oil? This is a short version of this class; a longer version should be available on December 11.
