Question
Did our Sages exercise at all? How could the Maccabeans be so strong and know about warfare without practicing and working out? Of course this was one of the miracles which happened on Chanukah, but is there more we can say about the importance of exercising?

Question
I saw in a calendar that this coming Shabbat - the Shabbat before Passover - is called "Shabbat HaGadol". Does this mean "The Great Shabbat"? What is the significance of this?

Question
What's the source for "Chanukah gelt" - giving money or presents on Chanukah? Does it have a Jewish source, or is it something we copied from others so Jewish kids wouldn't feel left out? Does it have any significance? Thank you.
