I mentioned earlier that I've become a de facto klezmer instructor. This does not extend, however, to the religious side of things Jewish. I know it's the Festival of Lights, and has become a significant holiday largely because its position on the calendar makes it a useful counterbalance to Christmas. But hey - once doesn't need to be a rabbi to appreciate a holiday that has at its heart the lighting of candles on these darkest days of the year. So Happy Hanukkah, and enjoy these unusual holiday tunes.
