Track 2:
Ocho Kandelikas. Words and music by Flory Jagoda. From the album Hanukkah Nights. Ocho Kandelikas is sung in Ladino from the Spanish Sephardic Jewish culture.

It is a song about the eight candles of the Hanukkah menorah and all the wonderful foods that are prepared in honor of Hanukkah. Arlene Frank-vocals, Ken Kaufman-piano, Jerry Livingston-bass, Roman Mekinulov-cello, Preston Brown-percussion and Mike Frank-percussion.

The tale of the Maccabees; Hanukkah’s ancient story in song!

Hanukkah lasts for eight days and eight nights - when we really do celebrate the festival of light by lighting the Hanukkah menorah, eating special scrumptious foods like latkes and donuts and share gifts with friends and family.

Track 8:
Sevivon/The Little Top. From the album Hanukkah Nights. Arlene Frank-vocals, Ken Kaufman-piano, Jerry Livingston-bass, Roman Mekinulov-cello.

A Sevivon or Dreidel is a little top decorated with one Hebrew letter on each of it’s four sides. It is spun in a game of chance called the Dreidle Game at Hanukkah time. The winner gets gold foil-covered chocolate coins each time they win! The top is spun on it’s bottom point until it finally plops down. Win or loose at this chocolate lovers’ game? It all depends on which side the four sided top lands on, after spinning round and round and round! The side facing up lets you know if you win all, loose all, give half and get half! Or, you can just find out who can make it spin longer and eat chocolate!
