The Story of Maccabees is usually relegated to the celebration of Chanukah, but the heart of their story was a commitment to restore the house of G-d as a place of worship and praise and to stand against the cruelty and injustice that threatened to engulf them. We are their sons!
In Hebrew, being a son means more than just shared genetic material. A son is meant to build upon the foundation of his father's house. As sons of the Maccabees (B'nai Maccabim), we will take up the hammer of our fathers to build a house of worship and praise to our G-d, and we will actively pursue Tikun Olam (the Repairing the world), through a commitment to the study, understanding, and living out of the Word of G-d, until the fullness of Kingdom of the Messiah, Yeshua, is established upon the earth.
And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time to recover the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria, and from Egypt, and from Pathros, and from Cush, and from Elam, and from Shinar, and from Hamath, and from the islands of the sea. 12 And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.
Yeshayahu (Isaiah) 11:11-12
