Rav Shteinman zt”l & the Flames of Chanukah

CHANUKAH: Why are we commanded to light the candles, when the biggest miracle seems to be the military victory? And how is this connected to Rav Shteinman zt"l?

This week, approximately 600,000 people attended the funeral of Rav Aharon Yehuda Leib Shteinman zt”l, who passed away at the age of 104. Rav Shteinman was the leader of the Lithuanian Haredi community and was considered to be one of the leading Torah sages in the world.

His funeral coincided with the start of the Chanukah celebrations, which leads us to wonder what could be the connection between the two?
