Saluting Our
Hometown Maccabees


The holiday of Chanukah is an eight-day celebration of Jewish continuity, commemorating a small group of heroic Jewish fighters during the time of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem. These fighters, the Maccabees, fought tirelessly against a massive army attempting to eradicate Judaism. Against all odds, the Maccabees triumphed. Judaism continues to thrive.


Just like the Maccabees, our healthcare workers work tirelessly every day to make our communities safer, healthier, and brighter, healing their patients and protecting our loved ones at great personal sacrifice.


This Chanukah, we’re taking the message of the holiday to heart by expressing gratitude to our local healthcare heroes, our hometown Maccabees. Please join us in celebrating our healthcare staff and essential workers with our Hometown Maccabees Campaign, an initiative to encourage gratitude towards the exceptional people to whom we are all indebted.


As part of the campaign, we would like to nominate a Healthcare Hero each night, a healthcare worker who has gone above and beyond for their patients during the pandemic. If you have a healthcare hero you’d like us to nominate, fill out the form below!
