When the Maccabeats created this Hanukkah song, they probably had no idea how viral it would go. This is one of the catchiest songs!
The Hanukkah Song That Went Viral
Candlelight is one of the best Hanukkah songs out there. The Jewish acappella group Maccabeats, created this Hanukkah song over a decade ago. And yet, it is still one of the most creative and greatest there is. You can’t only listen once. And you can’t listen without singing once you know the words.
No one realized how viral this would really go. It’s truly unbelievable!
The song goes through a few ideas from the holiday of Hanukkah. It reminds Jews what the holiday is about. It takes you on a short journey of the story of the miracles from thousands of years ago. As Jews, we celebrate and remember our history. We don’t forget. And sometimes, people connect through unique songs like this one. If you really listen to the words, you will be reminded of what the holiday is about. The lyrics say “A great return to Torah learning.” We celebrate the fact that the Greeks tried to destroy us spiritually but failed. They wanted to get rid of our Torah and our morals. But the Jewish people stayed strong.
The Jewish people have faced the threat of spiritual and physical annihilation for centuries and centuries. It is miraculous that they are still here and the “mighty” Greeks, Romans, and others are not.
How can you not believe in G-d after learning of all these miracles?
