A Night of Hanukkah


8 PM - Hanukkah Lights
A perennial NPR favorite, Hanukkah Lights features all new Hanukkah stories. Read by hosts Susan Stamberg and Murray Horwitz. Murray and Susan looked back into the show's 30 year archive and picked their favorite stories: "Hanukkah Gelt" by Sholem Aleichem, "Gifts of the Last Night" by Rebecca Goldstein, "How To Spell The Name Of G-d" by Ellen Orleans, "Of Love and Latkes" by Lia Pripstein, and "Erev Christmas" by Clement Clarke Moore, translated by Marie Jaffe.

9 PM - Candles Burning Brightly
A delightful hour for everyone to celebrate the Jewish Festival of Lights! Lots of music from Jewish communities around the world, plus a hilarious lesson on how to prepare a classic Chanukah dish, and a timeless and touching holiday story that brings light into every home.

10 PM - The Rhythm Atlas Hanukkah Music Special
In a special edition of The Rhythm Atlas, we’ll celebrate Hanukkah. You’ll hear traditional klezmer-styled tunes, songs from the Sephardic Jewish culture with roots in Spain, and festive modern takes on the joyous celebration known as the Festival of Lights.
