Album Notes
"The Kabbalah of Chanukah" is an hour-long CD of Tales, Teachings, and Sacred Music for the Festival of Lights and features Cantor Richard Kaplan and Estelle Frankel. This program was originally produced as a holiday special for Pacifca Radio, and has been aired on NPR and College radio stations nationwide. Running time: 55:54

"With support from KPFA´s Susan Stone, producer Russ Jennings has arranged a new invitation to an old natural mystic. I know my Chanukah data pretty well, but Estelle Frankel's evocative narrative, like letting you in on a delicious secret, is an order of magnitude up the ladder, from mind to spirit....And Cantor Richard Kaplan is something beyond easy categorization.. This is music to leap cultures...'The Kabbalah of Chanukah' empowers man's best hopes. And it feels good..."

This wasn't quite what I'd expected, considering that I have both of Kaplan's cds, but I liked it. I shared it with a member of my chavurah who is a shut-in--both for the different-for-Chanukah music and the insights into the mysteries of Chanukah. All who have heard it have felt they benefitted from its message.
