ADASA1. Town mentioned only in the period of the Maccabean revolt. Judas Maccabeus defeated the Syrian army under Nicanor in 161 bc at Adasa. The victory was celebrated annually on the 13th of Adar (1 Macc 7:40, 45, 49). The modern site is probably Khirbet ’Adassa, 7 miles (11 kilometers) from Beth-horon.
