Mattathias in Wikipedia
Mattathias (Hebrew: מתתיהו בןיחאנן הכהן, Matitiyahu or
Matisyahu ben Yochanan HaCohen in Hebrew) was a Jewish priest
whose role in the Jewish revolt against the Syrian Greeks is
related in the Books of the Maccabees. Mattathias is accorded
a central role in the story of Chanukah and, as a result, is
named in the Al Hanissim prayer Jews add to Grace after meals
and the Amidah during the festival's eight days...
