Belated Chanukah Torah p 1

There are 92 words in the Al HaNisim for Chanukah. This me'stomo refers to the 92nd pasuk in the Torah where it says na vo'nad tiheyeh ba'aretz. The Galus of Yavan was the only galus ba'aretz - within the land of Israel - an internal, spiritual galus. Nad is, of course, a reference to the letters reversed - Dan - who were the only shevet who underwent an internal galus when they moved from their original proximity to Yehudah to the region that eventually was the domain of Antiochus.

More to come...
