The Uncensored Story of Chanukah/Hanookah חנוכה

Updated: Dec 18, 2022


hanookah chanukah chanuka hanuka

The following is an AhavaEchad.org World First Reveal – thanks to The Infinite One God. The following text is a new English translation of a 1,747 year old Aramaic Manuscript of The Targum of Tanakh (The Transmitted-Initial-Meaning of Tanak (Holy Scriptures) - The Original 24 Books Signed & Sealed by the last living Prophets on earth). This text is labeled as "Additional Targum/Meaning" to a verse in Sefer Zekharyah. But being so lengthy, it was decided to be placed separately at the end of the manuscript- while referenced in the exact location it is supposed to be in the Targum of the verses of Zekharyah. While we read this very text of Sefer Zekharyah as the HaPhTarah on Shabbat Chanukah (The Section from the Prophets in Scripture connected with the Torah portion), very few people ever get an opportunity to read even the extant Targum (Meaning) of that text- how much more so this following text- because this particular text had been censored and removed from our Tanakh & is not found anywhere else- except this manuscript & here on AhavaEchad.org . This Censored Targum Text meticulously details the story of Hanukah - & the Hashmonaim - The Family of The Big Kahunas / Highest Kohen Priest Family & how they were enabled Divinely to save Israel & impossibly eradicate The Greek Empire. That is why we say HaLeL all 8 days: (Miderush Pesikta Rabbati Pticha)

EXTRA TARGUM OF (THE VERSE) ’RONI VESIMCHI’ רני ושמחי "rejoice aloud & be ecstatic"



It was an extraordinarily distressful time during the reign of Antiochus son of Antiochus, King of the Greeks, who came out from Rome,

& ruled 127 countries- from the most eastern part of India, to the most western part of Africa. He conquered all fortified cities & villages & ruled by sea and land, controlling them completely.

He then turned his attention to Jerusalem and said to his supporters, “Did you not hear that there exists a nation, the Judahites, whose ways are not our ways & their Torah (Light/Guide of Truth) is different than our truths & guides them towards customs and practices that are different from ours? Now come, let us subjugate them and wither away their Torah & their practice of Torah so that they will be like the rest of the 70 nations and the entire Earth will be one language and practice: that of the Greeks.”

He then sent Nicanor (Niqanor), one of his second in commands, and his large army to Jerusalem to enforce his will. They successfully entered the city and killed everyone they could find there. They threw the corpses into the heart of the city, and the wounded were sold into bondage in the outside marketplaces. All the special musical instruments that were used to spark prophecy were destroyed and removed from the Beit Hamikdash. The Korbanot of Olah (elevation "offering"), Minchah ("offering" of thanks), and other forms of "offerings" to Hashem were terminated.


_

After these horrific events, Yohanan, one of the sons of Matathyah was filled with a fiery rage and crafted himself an extremely sharp, double-sided blade. He equipped this dagger in a secret sheath on his left thigh underneath his royal garments. Yochanan arose and went to the entrance gate to Jerusalem to purposefully be captured by the Greek guards who then brought him before Nicanor.

Nicanor said to Yohanan: “From which of the nations are you?” Yohanan responds, “I am from the children of Matathyah, the rebels against the king, but I have come before you to do your will and the will of your king.” Nicanor answers, “The thing I ask of you is not difficult. Take this cup of wine and lift it up over this Farachah (idolatrous alter) that I built and you will be made to be like one of the king’s loved ones. You will ride on the king’s horses, & wear lavish royal clothes of his, and a gold necklace will be placed around your neck.”

Yochanan told Nicanor: Tell your men to exit the room so that they should not go and say to the Children of Israel that Yohanan, the son of Matathyah, lifted a cup of wine over this idolatrous alter. Nicanor obliged. When all the men left the room, Yochanan took the blade from his left side, took three steps, said three words (quick prayer), and stuck the blade in Nicanor’s heart, killing him. & On that day Yohanan killed 300 influential Greek officers & 3,000 officers under them, and they changed his name and gave him the nickname Meqanai. (“The one who is jealous for Me.”)


_

When Antiochus heard of what happened his fury increased. He sent Bagriis, another Second-to-the-king, to Jerusalem to exert his will. Bagriis and his army arrived in Jerusalem were able to enter with ease, & proceeded to kill everyone they could find there, and threw the corpses into the heart of the city. Those that were wounded were sold into bondage at the outside marketplaces. The Korbanoth of Olah, Minchah, and other "offerings" to Hashem were once again ceased.

Many from the Nation of Israel succumbed to the ways of the Greeks. They also started to go & inform & snitch to the Greeks as to the whereabouts of Matathyah, and his sons- & were they are residing or will be. They then built idolatrous alters in the streets of the city. One influential member of this backstabbing group offered incense on the alter and declared in a loud voice, “That whom does not do the words of the king will be killed & Those who rebel will have their souls taken from them” (suffer an excruciating, slow and painful death). Matathyah and his sons heard of these events and became filled with anger and sadness. They cried in deepest prayer to The Infinite God- & proceeded to kill all the Greek soldiers that were sent. Only Bagriis and his entourage were able to escape.


_

Bagriis and his entourage arrived at the fortress walls of Jerusalem on Shabbat. While they were trying to breach the walls of the city, a distinguished man from the Nation of Israel who had succumbed to the Greeks said to Bagriis, “Come and I will show you Judahites hiding inside a cave.” Bagriis arrived to the mouth of the cave and called out in a caring yet commanding voice (in a misguided attempt at “uniting” the Children of Israel with the Greek way) “Come out Judahites from your cave, and eat from our bread, & drink from our wine, and be like us, and together we will listen to the words of the king.”

At that moment, a prophetic good word fell upon the hearts and minds of the Judahites who were hiding in the cave. They responded, “It is written with the 22 symbols of Truth in the Torah of Mosheh (Moses) - that “6 days you shall work and do all the special 39 types of work you need and on Day 7- you should relax and cease these undertakings of the 39 melachot/creative works.” It is better for us that we burn in a fire instead of violating the day of good, the Shabbath, and make it just like any other average day.” Bagriis heard those words, & lit a fire by the mouth of the cave, & killed approximately 1,000 Outstanding Men & Women.


_

When Matathyah and his sons heard of what happened, they “went out from their places” both physically and mentally. They arrived at the Heights of the Moabites. They saw an outstanding man from the Nation of Israel- his wife just days earlier birthed a baby boy. On this 8th day after the infant’s birth, the mother climbed the walls of the fortress with her son and declared with a loud voice, “We say to Bagriis and to his armies of warriors & students & followers- that YOU will all say and admit before all that “we failed to remove the dominion of Israel (Men) & power from the House of Jacob (Women).” It is better for us that we should die, than transgress the Light of the Torah of Mosheh by not giving a Brit Milah - (God's Covenant Visible In The Flesh - on the 8th day) to our boys.” She then performed the three acts of Brit Milah with her teeth and jumped along with her baby boy from the top of the wall and they died did she & her nursing infant as one. Many of the daughters of Israel did the same in order to preserve the ways of the Torah and to not remove the covenant of God to Abhraham from their boys. Matathyah and his sons were filled with rage and sadness. They cried tears flowing on their clothes in the deepest prayer to The One Infinite God. They proceeded to kill all the Greek soldiers that were sent. Only Bagriis and his entourage were able to escape.

_

Bagriis and his men returned to Antiochus. They said to him:

“All of our mighty armies from every single place- ARE NOTHING compared to the 5 sons of Matathyah.”

Antiochus increased his rage and said to gather his personal army. Bagriis answered to Antiochus, “If you will go, you will be embarrassed. But if you wage wars from afar- you will be celebrated. Heed my good advice - write letters to all the kings you have under your rule and tell them to all go and fight the 5 sons of Matathyah.”

Antiochus listened to his advice and sent out letters to all the 127 kings under his rule. The kings were bewildered at such a request but obliged out of fear and they all went out from their countries and headed towards Jerusalem with iron carriages - like the sand that borders the ocean; foot soldiers in numbers incomprehensible. The arriving armies split up in groups of approximately 10,000 soldiers in the pursuit of defiling and impurifying the holiest parts of the Beit Hamikdash.

Matathyah and his 5 sons heard what was happening and decreed a tortuous fast amongst themselves. They sat on sackcloth, put ashes on their head, and cried profusely and found no calming down in front of The Elyon (above the physical) King - Almighty Hashem.

___

These are the names of the 5 sons of Matathyah:

The First = Yehoodah
The Second = Shimohn
The Third = Yohanan
The Fourth = Yonatan
The Youngest = Elahzar

Matathyah blessed all his sons with a unique blessing:

“Yehoodah - My son; to who can I compare you to? I will compare you to Yehoodah, the son of Yaakov, because he dwells like a lion in the field.”

“Shimohn - = My son, to who can I compare you to? I will compare you to Shimon, the son of Yaakov, that with his power & might, he killed Hamor & destroyed all of the city of Shechem.”

“Yohanan - My Son...I will compare you to Avner, son of Ner. For in battle- towards him they would go; & After- they would not even be returnable.

“Yonatan – My Son...I will compare you to Yonatan son of Shaul because scripture (Book of Samuel) states, ‘From the blood of corpses and the fats of the mighty ones, the sword of Shaul will not return clean, & the bow of Yonatan would not return empty.’

“Elahzar – My son; Who can I compare you to? I will compare you to Yoav son of Tzerooyah (King Davids General), that when he draws his sword, piles of dead fly from before him.”

___

Yehoodah said to his brothers, “I have no armor, strong weapons, or chariots. I am giving over my soul to Hashem and will stand in the face of all the second to the kings who will arrive to conquer Jerusalem.”

Shimohn said to his brothers: “I have no armor, strong weapons, or chariots. I am giving over my soul to Hashem and will stand in the face of all 127 kings who will attempt to conquer Jerusalem.”

Yohanan said to his brothers: “I have no armor, strong weapons, or chariots. I am giving over my soul to Hashem and will stand in the face of all the wielders of scythes and spears that arrive to conquer Jerusalem.”

Yonatan said to his brothers: “I have no armor, strong weapons, or chariots. I am giving over my soul to Hashem and will stand in the face of all the wielders of bow & arrow that arrive to conquer Jerusalem.”

Elahzar said to his brothers: “I have no armor, strong weapons, or chariots. I am giving over my soul to Hashem and will stand in the face of all the elephants adorned in iron chain armor that arrive to conquer Jerusalem.”

___

Yehoodah said to Shimohn, “Take your bow in your left hand and your arrow in your right and send a shot over the enemy nations.”

___

In that moment Hashem, The Elyon (above the physical) King that exists in the Universes, sent 7 cruel angels who drove the Greek armies insane, [destroying them from the inside via the destruction of their minds. (Measure for measure- AE)]:

(Yehoodah and Shimohn changed roles according to the manuscript:)

Yehoodah descended in the face of the 127 kings that arrived to overtake Jerusalem & killed them all, Shimohn descended in the face of all the Seconds to the king, that arrived to overtake Jerusalem - & annihilated them. Yohanan descended in the face of all Scythe/Spear-wielding-infantry that arrived to overtake Jerusalem & ended them all. Yonatan descended in the face of all the archeres- wielders of the bow & arrow, that arrived to overtake Jerusalem & severed & broke them all. Elahzar descended in the face of all The Elephants adorned in iron armor (Tanks) that arrived to overtake Jerusalem & uprooted them all.
After the fighting, the 4 eldest brothers went looking for Elahzar amongst the living and dead but he was nowhere to be found…

Additional Info.




After completing the extra text The Scribe of The Manuscript wrote out for us under what verse of Scripture does this extra targoom text fall under. Although it is called the Targum of "Roni VeSimkhi" Rejoice & Extaticate - it is actually 2 verses after the verse Roni VeSimchi- but it is said to Be for Roni Vesimkhi Because it explains why the prophet is saying Roni to rejoice - because The Infinite One God will never leave you for harm.

The verse where this Additional Targum goes under is: וינחל ייי את יהודה “And HaShem will let inherit ETh (ALONG WITH) Yehudah, their portion on the land, and Will desire once again in Jerusalem.” (Zekharyah 2, 16)

The key word in this Pasuk /Verse is ET את. & ETh את is a word that is lost in translation. ETh את is arguably the most important word in The Scribed Written Torah if we can say such a thing for it means "that which is along with" so it really includes something else along with the following words. This is the answer who did Qain (Cain) and Hevel (able) Marry - assuming that they were the only humans/humanoids at that time... The Sages transmit that Havah ("Eve") gave birth to ETh QAIN - to someone along with kain- an identical twin sister - (that was done early stages of humanity before the Giving of The Torah- so is the unbroken transmission from Mosheh from Sinai.) In other places the word ETh את is a reference to the entire Hebrew Aleph Bet from Aleph (The first symbol) until Tav (The last symbol). (as it does in the first verse of Scripture). Here in this verse in Zekhariah it is used to mean “Along with”.

So the meaning of the verse is - Hashem The Infinite ONE will give the kingdom & rulership to ET someones ALONG WITH (the kingdom & rulership of) Yehudah. ie = id est = that is - the Hashmanaim. For The Hashmanaim, Matathyah & his 5 sons - are all Kohanim from the line of Levi yet have a brief takeover of the entire kingdom of Israel which is normally under Yehudah’s leadership- but due to such a dire state of emergency where both the Nation of Israel & its leaders- From The House of Yehudah was nearly lost entirely to the Greek “culture” wisdom actions. So thank God due to the Hashmanaim’s devotion to "HaShem" ("The Name" of The Infinite In Biblical Hebrew that depicts INFINITY & EXISTENCE IN ONE WORD - lost entirely in translation to every other language & script], in their merit & in their ancestors merit, & helped by the Prophetic Blessing of Mosheh/Moses to The Branch of Levi (nearly the end of Five Fifths of Torah. Hashem brought the miracles of Hanookah as outlined here- foreseen by Zekhariah. Zecharyah several hundred years before they occurred saw in prophesy the events of Hanookah in brilliant detail- if the people do no repent this is what will happen... Just like Hashem fulfilled the prophecy of Hanookah, Hashem The Infinite One will bring about all the miracles outlined in the rest of the prophecies in Tanakh- that are still waiting to happen for the good- with abundant mercies…


Hanookah Sameach // Happy Hanookah // חנוכה שמח

Have a Happy Healthy Holiday of Hanukkah.
