Hanukkah Gelt

During Hanukkah, the Hasmonean Museum in Modi’in will display a box of 15 silver coins from the Maccabean revolt 2,200 years ago. They were discovered in May this year in caves in the Judean desert, probably the property of one of the Jews involved in overthrowing the Syrian-Greek rulers.
