Oh Hanukkah

Here’s another Hanukkah song. I believe it’s sung while lighting the menorah.

Oh Hanukkah

Oh Hanukkah, Oh Hanukkah,
Come light the menorah.
Let’s have a party,
We’ll all dance the hora.
Gather round the table,
We’ll give you a treat.
Dreidels to play with, latkes to eat.

And while we are playing
The candles are burning low.
One for each night,
They shed a sweet light
To remind us of days long ago;
One for each night,
They shed a sweet light
To remind us of days long ago.

Menorah = Ceremonial Candelabra used for Hanukkah
Hora = A circle dance
Dreidels = Special tops, played with on Hanukkah
Latkes = Potato pancakes, the traditional food for Hanukkah

Happy Hanukkah!
