Notes Produced in 2004 to support the One Family Fund, a fund that provides assistance to victims of terrorist attacks in Israel, this album celebrates Chanukah. It takes us from the two (and on the first night, three) b'rochot that accompany the lighting of the candles on each of the eight nights of Chanukah to the songs of praise and heroism and joy that we sing in celebration of his happiest of Jewish holidays. The songs include such perennial favorites are Ma Oz Tzur, Ocho Kandelikas, Al Hanisim, Mi Yemelel, and Halleluyah, along with a children's chorus, the Renanim Youth Singers, singing “I Have a Little Dreydl”.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
