We can make something out
of something. Our capacity
to discover wonders and
signs is a gift for which we
offer thanks three times
each day. "Thou gracest the
human being with knowl-
edge and givest him to
understand."
In many cultures miracles
signify strange, mysterious,
unnatural events like a man
walking on water or flying
in the air. But in the lang-
uage of our tradition, Heb-
rew, the word for miracle is
nes. It means "sign," from
whose root the term
"significance" is derived. To
witness the miraculous is to
observe in an ordinary event
extraordinary significance,
an event so important that it
cries to be raised up and
celebrated.
The victory in the second
century over the Greek-
Syrian forces that sought to
extinguish Jewish freedom
is a nes, a signpost in our
history that points to the
direction of our lives.
Chanukah is the celebrated
significance of the Jewish
ideal of religious freedom.
The world in which we live
is real. The swords and
spears and elephants of the
Greek-Syrians were real, as
were the strengths of the
Maccabeans. Miracles are
experienced through the
capacity of human beings to
turn the real into the ideal.
Miracles create something
out of something, something
transcendent out of some-
thing ordinary. The
paragraph added to the
Amidah and the grace after
during the eight days of
Chanukah celebrates the
significance of transforma-
tion, 'for You have delivered
the strong into the hands of
the weak, the many into the
hands of the few."
The sense of significance
applies to our daily lives. We
cannot often in our lives
create or alter the "given,"
change the diseases, ac-
cidents, misfortunes dealt
out to us. We can, more often
than we expect, make some-
thing out of them.
Negative experiences can
be converted into affirma-
tions of life. Adversity may
be used to refine the human
spirit, to bring forth coverage.
What happened on the fif-
th day of Iyar in our time —
the day of Israel's in-
dependence — reaffirms the
miracle, nes, that took place
on the 25th of Kislev more
than 2,000 years ago. The
Chanukah lights remind us
that miracles are as real as
the transforming power of
ideals. ❑
