I have to trek back.
2013 Thanksgiving + Hanukkah = Thanksgivukkah happened simultaneously.
Hanukkah ended in the evening of December 5th, 2013.
So here are my favorite new Hanukkah songs I found on Spotify. I used most of these with my students (to perform or to listen to).
For non-Spotify users – here is the list to Google for your pleasure.
- Swingin’ Dreidel – Kenny Ellis
- Rock of Ages (Maoz Tzur) – Artaria String Quartet
- Hayom Chanukah – Shira Kline
- Hanukkah is Here – Joe Nelson
- Happy Hanukkah – Matisyahu*
*Artist Hilli Kushnir created a beautifully illustrated storybook of Matisyahu’s “Happy Hanukkah”. Check it out. It’s great for teaching the song to students.
