Judah the Maccabee was the leader of the Maccabees, Jews of Judea that were oppressed by Antiochus IV, a king from Syria, who ruled over Judea as a tyrant.

He led the Maccabees to resist and,[1] though the Jews were outnumbered and did not stand a chance,[2] ousted Antiochus' hordes from Judea and reconsecrating the temple which had been filled with idols.[1]
