Happy Hanukkah! It is day six of Hanukkah, and I just learned of this great video by a group of students from Yeshiva University called The Maccabeats.

According to an AP story on KOMO News:

The Maccabeats’ “Candlelight” is sung to the tune of the pop song “Dynamite” by Taio Cruz, and features latkes, candles and a telling of the Hanukkah story. The video for the song has gotten well over 2 million views since its release about a week and a half ago.

I enjoy how this song celebrates latkes– love ’em, especially with my grandma’s homemade applesauce. Also, some in the Christian faith consider a kinship with the Jewish people to be very important– after all, one Yeshua of Nazareth, the founder of our faith, happens to be Jewish.

Khag Urim Sameakh to all of you!
