There are 8 nights of the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah. Each night has something spiritually special about it.

Singing Through the 8 Nights of Hanukkah

The Maccabeats are a Jewish acapella band who became well known to the world in 2010 after they created a song called “Candlelight.” It went viral – and not only in the Jewish world. Now, 10 years later, they have created another, different version of a “Candlelight” song. They go through 8 nights of Hanukkah. The song is fun, upbeat, and filled with all the well known Hanukkah symbols.

The Lyrics

Cause I-I’ll wait for the stars tonight
So watch us light the fire and set the night alight.

Night one, stay up for the fun
Chocolate gelt, let the dreidels roll
Night two, get up and move
Dance party in the living room
Singing songs for the Maccabees
From dawn until night three
Night four, say Maoz Tzur
Getting showered in gifts galore.

(Chorus) Things are feeling heavy
Time for another zoom I’m ready (woo hoo)
Life is sweet as jelly
Fry it up, get in my belly
Newsfeed overload, we’re over that, we’re good to go
You know what, we’re here to show up
Hey, so let’s go.

Cause I-I’ll wait for the stars tonight
So watch us light the fire and set the night alight
Celebrate together and we’ll never be alone
It’s the miracle of the Candlelight.

High five, it’s night five
Wherever in the world you are
Night six, leave your shtick
And your politics at the door
Oil heaven, here comes seven
So we dance till the break of dawn
Eighth night, we’ll be alright
We’re connected near and far.

(Chorus)

Cha na na na na na nu ka hey
Cha na na na na na nu ka hey
Cha na na na na na nu ka hey
Miracle of Candlelight.

‘Cause I-I’ll wait for the stars tonight
So watch us light the fire and set the night alight
Shining through the city and we’ll never be alone
For the Miracle of the Candlelight.
