The stories, rituals and customs of Chanukah with facinating musical accompaniment.

Chanukah in Story and Song, airing Monday, December 10, 2012 at 12 p.m. on Classical 91.5/FM-HD 91.5-1, is narrated by Leonard Nimoy and sung by the acclaimed vocal sextet The Western Wind Vocal Ensemble.

This delightfully engaging program presents eclectic selections spanning Ladino songs of the Spanish Jews and Yiddish melodies of Eastern Europe and modern Israeli tunes. The ensemble performs a cappella, as well as with instrumental accompaniment. The narration, written by Rabbi Gerald Skolnik, sheds new light on the holiday's customs and rituals.
