Chanukkah

The new Maccabeats song for Chanukkah

B”H
Chanukkah is right around the corner and the Jewish world will be celebrating it from the 6-14 December this year. I am planning on writing a bit more about Chanukkah because I have all these great books written by Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik, the Vilna Gaon, Rabbi Yosef Shalom Eliyashiv, the Chatam Sofer, Rabbi Zaddok of Lublin and various chassidic Kuntres.
Jerusalem always has the best Chanukkah atmosphere although the northern town of Zfat with it’s cozy alleyways makes the same claim. 🙂
Its a real pity that most photographers wait until the eights and last day of Chanukkah. Only then they start walking around in order to take pictures. The most favourite photo spot is the Nachlaot neighbourhood in Jerusalem.

But due to the incoming masses of people, it will be extremely noisy and crowded.
