Hillel vs Shammai
Chanukah!
Shamai says you light all 8 candles on

Corresponds to the number of
days left of Chanukah to come
Hillel says you start with one and then
increase
Corresponds to the days that
are gone
With holy objects you increase,
not decrease
Hillel is right! (yayyy)

Referred to as a patriarch (bestowed upon him
by the romans?)
