The Top 8 Hanukkah Songs Of All Time

December 1, 2015

Every true celebration often includes music accompaniment, so it’s only appropriate that during Hanukkah, the Festival of lights, we showcase the musical skills of some wildly talented Hanukkah aficionados. We’ve compiled a list of our favorite Hanukkah songs that are a bit more modern, but still as catchy as “dreidel, dreidel”.

So whether you’re a lover of hip-hop, a capella, or rock, there is something in this list for you. Warning: many of these songs will be stuck in your head for the entire day.


Six13, “Chanukah (Shake it Off)”


The Maccabeats, “Candlelight”


Adam Sandler, “The Hanukkah Song”


Okay, so not exactly a Chanukah song, but still great! Brandon Walker, “Chinese Food on Christmas”
