The Victory of the Spirit

From an address delivered
in Boston in 1912.
Hanuka, the Feast of the Mac-
cabees, celebrates a victory—not
a military victory, only, but a vic-
tory also of the spirit over things
materiaL Not a victory only over
external enemies—the Greeks, but
a victory also over more danger-
ous internal enemies. A victory of
the many over the ease-loving,
safety-playing, privileged, powerful
few, who in their pliancy would

the people, a victory of democracy

over aristocracy.
As part of the eternal world-
wide struggle for democracy, the
struggle of the Maccabees is of

that the Jews — then already an
old people — possessed the secret
of eternal youth: the ability to re-
juvenate itself through courage,
hope, enthusiasm, devotion and
self-sacrifice of the plain people.
This will bring again a Jewish
