This month, Chanukah, the Festival of Lights, will be celebrated in Jewish communities all over the world. The musicians of the Western Wind have gathered together songs from these varied backgrounds, from Eastern Europe, to modern Israel and America, to the Ladino songs of the Spanish Jews, to create this program, reflecting the rich diversity of the Jewish heritage. You'll also hear about the background and traditions of the holiday — narrated by no less than Leonard Nimoy.
