Album Notes
Ilene Safyan and Margie Rosenthal have shared their love of music with audiences of all ages for over 20 years. Brought together by a mutual love of Jewish music, they joined forces in 1979 and have been singing together ever since.

They are known nationally as engaging performers whose warmth and personality match their lyrical voices. They are recognized for their warm harmonies, unique musical arrangements and their ability to captivate audiences, young and old. They are enthusiastic and versatile and are as comfortable singing in Hebrew as they are singing Yiddish or English.

Chanukah is a holiday celebrated in the home. The best Chanukah music, like the best family celebration, is a fusion of old traditions, new ideas, and timeless values. The music on this compact disc is a blend of old and new melodies and words, but the musical themes of freedom and light are timeless.

Parents' Choice Magazine awarded JUST IN TIME FOR CHANUKAH! the Gold Medal for excellence in children's recordings. JUST IN TIME FOR CHANUKAH! has been recommended by Entertainment Weekly, Hadassah Magazine, Long Island Parenting News, LA Parent Magazine, and the American Library Association. Margie and Ilene’s music has been a part of holiday programming on Children’s Media Network, NPR, and radio stations around the country.

Beautiful music for all.
I just ordered two copies of this CD because the cassette tape I bought 15 years ago had worn out. So many children's tapes are condescending and too "cute" for my taste. This tape is beautiful for both children and adults. I love the harmonies. I've taught these songs to my elementary school students and many friends who have gathered at my house to celebrate Hanukah. I'm giving one copy to the music teacher at my school so that she can add some better Hanukah songs to her repetoire. I was thrilled that I was still able to obain a copy. Thanks!
