Rabbi’s Weekly Message & Emanumail

Since Adam Sandler first performed The Chanukah Song on Saturday Night Live in 1994, Jews have hungered for better Chanukah music. Luckily, the last few years have been filled with excellent parodies as well as some very catchy original pieces. This year is no exception. The Maccabeats return this year with Illuminating, a parody of Dua Lipa’s ubiquitous Levitating. And this year’s winner (in my humble opinion) is Six13 with West Side Chanukah Story, a wonderful West Side Story parody. After lighting the candles this year I hope you’ll enjoy my annually updated YouTube playlist lovingly called Chanukah Songs That Are Not Terrible. Happy Chanukah!
P.S. Our congregation-wide celebration of Chanukah will be this Friday at 7:00pm. Please BYOM (Bring Your Own Menorah) to the sanctuary for a service filled with joy, music, videos, candles, and other surprises!
