Hannukah 5774

It is just weird that the first day of Hannukah this year comes on American Thanksgiving day – or vice versa depending on your point of view. The first candle is lit tonight and it is fortunate for tomorrow's meal that it's not too hard to make the traditional foods compatible with both holidays.

My good friend, Yaakov Kirschen, has been writing and drawing his Dry Bones cartoon for 40 years. (You can follow him at The Dry Bones Blog.) This is his entry for Hannukah 2011 - a repeat from my post last year but I still like the gentleness of the reminder.

And here's something new: Chanukah: Rock of Ages. As the YouTube page explains, it

” a parody of Jewish holiday parody songs that have become so popular. It tells the Chanukah story in 8 hit songs, capturing the history of contemporary music and dance.”

Happy Hanukkah, everyone.

At The Elder Storytelling Place today, Henry Lowenstern: Thanksgiving


Happy Holiday to you. The news says it will be thousands of years before these two holidays come together again.

And to you Ronni, Happy Hanukkah.

"Gobble Tov" as we say in New York City. Best wishes to Ronni and her wonderful contributors for a healthy and happy holiday.

Happy Hanukkah and Happy Thanksgiving, Ronni.

The video is terrific!

Happy Double Holidays to you, and may you have twice the delight.

Loved the video. Thanks!
