In this Torah shiur (class) on Chanuka, Rabbi Avishai David continues his explication of Maoz Tzur, the hymn sung after candle lighting on Chanuka. Part of the obligation to publicize the miracles of Chanuka (pirsumei nisa) is to verbally praise Hashem for them. Maoz Tzur incorporates praise for the miracle of the oil, as well as for the victory on battle, and also discusses the hardships and salvation experienced by the Jewish nation throughout history.
