I am giving myself the challenge of writing a blog post for every night of Chanukah. Ok, I might get helped out by the ‘publish later’ option. Nevertheless, here we are! Chanukah has arrived. As I was driving to the office today I remembered one of the fun parts about Chanukah is Radio Chanukah on XM or Sirius. I tuned in and was reminded of the power of Jewish music. Whether it is Irving Berlin’s White Christmas, George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, or Debbie Friedman’s I am a Latke, Jewish contributions to music are immense. What might happen if during the eight days of Chanukah we all made an effort to listen to music written by Jews? How might these sounds help enrich our Chanukah experience? Give it a try. Let me know! Chag urim sameach and Shabbat Shalom!
