Happy Hanukkah

16 Dec

beginning rabbiLast night was the last night of Hanukkah (but if I can post this before sundown- technically, this post is on time).

This is just a celebratory Hanukkah post because I don’t think the holiday gets enough props.

The only Hanukkah special is an episode of the Rugrats.


The holiday deserves a little more.

Comic Book Heroes that are Jewish. Ben Grimm (AKA The Thing from the Fantastic Four/ AKA Breaker of Souls) is Jewish. Awesome. (There is another list of Jewish “superheroes” on Buzzfeed. Superheroes is in quotes because Magneto is on the list (straight up supervillain). Otherwise, the list is just a number of shady looking people (Acidic Jew, I’m looking at you) or super obscure characters (Dust Devil?). There are some legit heroes on the list, though. Doc Samson, Songbird, and Justice…).

– A song about Hanukkah that isn’t the Dreidel Song. Peter, Paul, and Mary sing Light One Candle.

– Also there is a jewish a cappella group called the Maccabeats (47 thousand points for awesome pun). Here they are doing a cover of Matisyahu’s Miracle.

Mashup of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert talking about Hanukkah.

Rapper Too Short put out a Hanukkah song. This is either the best thing or the worst thing to happen to Hanukkah depending on who you are.

– In adorable/mildly patronizing posts at Buzzfeed: Dogs Celebrating Hanukkah, Cats Celebrating Hanukkah, and Celebrities Who Celebrate Hanukkah. They truly covered their spread.

And also this….
