Chanukah in Story and Song
Narrated by Leonard Nimoy and sung by the acclaimed vocal sextet The Western Wind Vocal Ensemble, Chanukah in Story and Song was a unique holiday program created especially for public radio listeners. This delightfully engaging program presented 25 eclectic selections, from the Ladino songs of the Spanish Jews and Yiddish melodies of Eastern Europe to modern Israeli tunes and the ensemble's original version of "I Have a Little Dreydle." The ensemble performed a cappella as well as with instrumental accompaniment. The narration, written by Rabbi Gerald Skolnik, shed new light on the holiday's customs and rituals.
