The cathedral nave’s spectacular stained glass windows are entirely dedicated to feminine biblical figures. Here, the window on the left represents the mother of the Maccabees (jewish family form Judea), martyr of the Maccabean revolt against Greek domination.
An important military victory of this same revolt is precisely the event that is commemorated during the jewish holiday of Hanukkah.
