When Star Wars and Hanukkah come together for the holiday

by Leah Rosenberg

What do Star Wars and Hanukkah have in common? Seemingly, nothing. Unless you are the Jewish acapella band Six13 and make this creative video!

Star Wars and Hanukkah

Different Jewish bands are always coming up with unique music videos and songs for the Jewish holidays. The band Six13 is known to have creative videos. They have done Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody for a Hanukkah video. They have created a Game of Thrones Passover. And now, Six13 made a Star Wars themed Hanukkah music video! Whether you’re a Star Wars fan or not, this is definitely an original and entertaining video.
