If you didn’t realize it yet, it’s not too late–but Hanukkah started last night.
I’ve noticed on Facebook that Hanukkah is the one time of year that all Jews, not just observant ones, posts Hanukkah videos. People I would never expect to post anything related to Judaism are putting up videos of some spin (GET IT!?!?) on “I Have a Little Dreidel.”
So I’ve gone through the trouble of going through all of these videos and have come up with my Top 8 Hanukkah videos for 2010. Today, I’ll reveal the first–MJL’s own Todd & God.
I really mean it. This video is golden. I actually liked it way before I even worked here when a Jewish Studies professor of mine showed it to my class. It’s funny, a little PG-13 and actually pretty informative.
Give it a look.
Pronounced: KHAH-nuh-kah, also ha-new-KAH, an eight-day festival commemorating the Maccabees’ victory over the Greeks and subsequent rededication of the temple. Falls in the Hebrew month of Kislev, which usually corresponds with December.
