dc.description.abstract In this book (downloaded from the Internet Archive), Gaster argues that the two Jewish holidays of lights--the Spring holiday of Purim and the Fall holiday of Hanukkah--are linked together by the celebration of liberation.This book traces the development and significance of these holidays across generations. Gaster attempts in this book to sketch the history of these holidays, and at the same time, to describe the dynamic nature of their observances throughout the ages.
