Chanukah in Story and Song

12/04/07 3:59PM

Leonard Nimoy hosts this Chanukah celebration featuring acclaimed vocal sextet The Western Wind Ensemble.

You'll hear 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 performs a cappella as well as with instrumental accompaniment. The narration, written by Rabbi Gerald Skolnik, sheds new light on the holiday's customs and rituals.
