  1. Mazeltov! Just in time for Hanukah which coincides neatly with Thanksgiving.

  2. Whatever you celebrate, Josh and friends can definitely make it happy with their musical gifts.

  3. Alberto Martinez says:

    The musicianship is excellent , the arranging is excellent too flowing from one piece of another and all is done with great humour. Although I wonder if Joo , Joshua Bell and Igudesman can make a vocal group too !!!!

  4. stanley cohen says:

    Brilliant – and nary a sight/sound of that famous Bavarian carol Ma’oz Tzur!

  5. Careena Bernstein says:

  12. My 85-year-old, raised-Orthodox dad is going to love this when I show him tomorrow at Thanksgiving. Very sweet, and glad for all the diversity! Good musicianship, too.

  13. If those red candelabras are supposed to be menorahs, they are missing 2 candles.

      One of the benefits of a Reform education is a total lack of awareness of many of the niceties of orthodox life – here a Menorah [as in the Temple, had seven branches] whereas a Chanukiah, for the festival of Chanukah has nine branches – one for each of the eight days and one for the ‘Servant’ or Shamash, with which the others are lit.

    This is wonderful. I just came from a Menorah lighting ceremony in Traditions Fl. over looking a beautiful lake with the sun setting . the Chabad House of Sturart Fl. put it on ,and it was wonderful. Traditional, non traditional,, and the Rabbi tied it in with Thanksgiving and Hanukkah . It was truly a celebration of both cultures.
