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.
