‘Tis the season for Hanukkah! The Festival of Lights begins the night of December 2 this year, ushering in the winter months and the joyous holiday season.
Though a minor festival on the Jewish calendar, Hanukkah has become one of the most beloved of Jewish holidays thanks to its eight days of festive traditions — lighting candles, exchanging gifts, eating jelly donuts and potato pancakes, playing dreidel and singing Hanukkah songs.
Amidst the season’s classic holiday jingles, gingerbread men and mistletoe, Hanukkah songs can often be overlooked, but we’ve got you covered. Before you light the hanukkiyah (menorah), add this list of songs to your traditional Hanukkah classics to help let the light in and celebrate the miracles of Hanukkah.
