In על הניסים
If you say uFInu es haychalecha it means and our mouths your courtyard
But if you accent it properly on the end of the word ufiNU then it means they cleaned out your courtyard
It is the question of the Taz why on Purim the emphasis is on mishteh vesimdha whereas Chanukah lehodos ulehalel? He explains, that on Purim, Haman wanted to destroy their body but Chanukah, the yevonim wanted to destroy their soul. It says in Pirkei Avos, wild animal comes to the world for swearing falsely. Asks the Binah Leitim, why it says comes to the world? He answers that the person not speaking properly, himself, turns into a wild animal, so it is important for us on Chanukah to cleanse ourselves spiritually by cleansing our mouths.
Klugeryid. Thanks so much for pointing this out. never realized that.
Reb Eliezer, gut gezogt.
Plus, your Vort explains why on chanuka we play Dreidel, holding it on the top, on purim we make noise with a Grager holding it on the bottom, גוף ונשמה.
The dreidel has גשנה – נס גדול היה שם gematria משיח what about EY? נגהפ – נס גדול היה פה gematria צמח.
Purim is Kabolas Hatorah for Torah Shebeksav (GUF) where as Chanukah according to the Yaaros Devash and Chasam Sofer is Kabolas Hatorah onTorah Shebaal Peh (Neshomo). The tuma was a tuma derabonon which through the neis was reinforced.
