Parshas Mikeitz: Vilna Gaon - The Connection Between Mikeitz And Chanuka - Submitted By Reb Avraham Malthete - Paris
The Gaon indicates that there is a relation, a Remez, between Chanuka
and the fact that we always read Parshas Mikeitz during Chanuka. At
the end of each parsha, the Masora gives the number of Pasukim, but
for strangely enough for Mikeitz it also gives the number of words -
Vilna Gaon says that it is to teach us if Poti Phera is one word or
two. Secondly, 2025 is a Remez to Ner Chanukah. The gemara in Shabbos
(21b) say we should light Ner Ish U'Baiso for 8 day. The Gematria of
the word Ner is 250 If you multiply that by 8 days, 8 x 250 = 2000.
The remaining 25 id for the 25th of Kislev.
