Hanukah distinguishes values such as courage, martyrdom, and preserving one's personal and national identity, to the point of willingness to sacrifice one's self. The source of the name for the days, 'hanukah', comes from the word describing the dedication of the Temple, which took place after it was occupied and purified by the Maccabis.
