In case you haven't noticed, Chanukah will be here in just ten days. The first candle is next Saturday night. In the world of Jewish Humor Central, that means we're ready to bring you the funniest Hanukkah happenings, music videos, and a cappella groups that we can find.
For the last two years, the Fountainheads, Maccabeats, and Aish haTorah led the way with impressive musical productions. Let's see if they repeat this year, or if we're dealing with a whole new crop of talented singers and dancers.
The first video to reach us this year is Eight Nights, an a cappella parody of a few current pop songs. The singers, Yeshiva University graduates David Block, Noey Jacobson, Nachum Joel, and Immanuel Shalev. The name of the group, StandFour, is a play on words. They say that after college, they want to continue to make music that is both fun and inspiring. They believe in bringing out the meaning present in all things -- "That's what we stand for." Enjoy!
