Bney Yissachar, Kislev/Tevet #2: Torah is a Light
Tzvi Elimelech of Dinov (18-19c)
59b: Torah comes from Hochmah (wisdom, the ontological root of Torah), and the Greeks wanted to destroy the light of Torah, therefore the miracle was done with oil which symbolizes wisdom.
60b: At the end of the period of Greek reign, God shined a little bit of that light after prophecy had been cancelled, in order that that light would stand by us in this lightweight exile instead of prophecy, because "a person could look with this light from one end of the earth to the other," Therefore it is called the candle of 'Hanukkah,' the candle of education (hinuch) and accustoming to the infinite light in the future redemption, when the hidden light of which it was said "let there be light" will shine.
61b2: Every time a person sees a new light in the Torah, it comes from the hidden light. Therefore the Torah is called light- everyone according to their labor and exertion in Torah. And by means of the hidden light one can every time see secrets from the end of the world, something which is not true of a prophet.
