It has a clever, catchy name. It will allegedly occur once every 78,000 years. It has inspired dozens of fusion recipes like sweet potato latkes with cranberry applesauce. It has even inspired a Hanukkiah or menorah in the shape of a turkey, a “menurkey.” It is the perfect...

The bank manager at Citibank ran over to me when I came by this week to show-off the company menorah. Each branch received a menorah. Well, they actually were sent two. What had happened? My friend the manager explained. The first one arrived with only one on-off switch to control...

Here’s a shout out to HEEB for spotting the full-on matzoh display at the Whole Foods on Fairfax today, with a sign blasting “Share Hanukkah Favorites”...an invite to share your favorite Chanukah recipes using….matzoh meal? Where’s the grease?
Thank, Heeb, you could almost have invented this one—cool as it is, set in the frum-adjascent neighborhood, couldn’t you?!

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?

A Chanukah video collaboration and I wasn’t involved? Shame on me.
If I had been on my game, I would’ve submitted a dynamite candle lighting clip (maybe even with real dynamite). I’d bring all the VideoJew friends together (Jelvis, Gino, Aaron Kemp, the guys from the kosher Subway, mah-jongg lady Elaine Sandberg)...the list could go on forever. But I suppose the VideoJew holiday special will have to wait until next year.

Those naughty Orthodox ‘schoolgirls’ Miriam and Shoshana are back in this brand new Oren Kaplan video, ‘Hardcore Hannuka Dance.’
It’s a ‘Tolerance Day’ school assembly somewhere far from the girls’ Pico-Robertson ‘hood and the girls are selected to explain the Festival of Lights to the kids. . . . and then all hell breaks loose!
You go, girls!
