Main: Happy Hannukah!


Radio Riel wish­es all of you a Hap­py Hanukkah!

In hon­or of the first full day of the Fes­ti­val of Lights we are pleased to present a pro­gram of Jew­ish music, from Folk to Con­tem­po­rary, sec­u­lar to sacred.

Light the Fes­tive Can­dles
by Aileen Lucia Fish­er

Light the first of eight tonight — the far­thest can­dle to the right.
Light the first and sec­ond, too, when tomor­row’s day is through.
Then light three, and then light four — every dusk one can­dle more
Till all eight burn bright and high, hon­or­ing a day gone by

When the Tem­ple was restored, res­cued from the Syr­i­an lord,
And an eight-day feast pro­claimed — the Fes­ti­val of Lights—well named
To cel­e­brate the joy­ous day when we regained the right to pray
to our one God in our own way.

Today’s pro­gram is pre­sent­ed by Gabrielle Riel. To lis­ten, click here to start your play­er . If you are in the Unit­ed States, please use the fol­low­ing link: .
