This is the second dish in my Take Back December for Chanuka campaign. It is appropriate for me to present this dish today, because tonight Chanuka falls on Shabbat. However, I must admit that while I find both the image and the name of this “dish” pretty cool, it’s not the most...

President Obama wished Jews a joyous Chanukah.
The Chanukah story, he said in a message Tuesday, “reminds us to count our blessings, to honor the sacrifices of our ancestors, and to believe that through faith and determination we can work together to build a brighter, better world for generations to come.”
He closed by wishing the “Jewish community around the world” a “Chag Sameach,” Hebrew for joyous holiday.

A message from Matisyahu from matisyahuworld.com:
There’s so many Christmas songs out there, I wanted to give the Jewish kids something to be proud of. We’ve got Adam Sandler’s song which is hilarious but I wanted to try to get across some of the depth and spirituality inherent in the holiday—in a fun, celebratory song. My boy Kojak was in town so at the last minute we went into the studio in the spirit of miracles and underdogs and this is what we came up with. Happy Hannukah!!
Do you like the song?
