Oh Chanukah, Oh Chanukah!: Tzlil V’zemer Children’s Choir

The Tzlil V’zemer Children’s Choir presents a favorite Chanukah song, “Oh Chanukah.”
Music; Song, Nigun, Chanukah

Chanukah, oh Chanukah, come light the menorah
Chanukah, oh Chanukah, come light the menorah
Gather ’round the table and let’s have a treat
Happy songs we’ll sing, and latkes we’ll eat

And while we are singing
The candles are burning bright
One for each night, they shed a sweet light
And remind us of days long ago

Oh Chanukah, oh Chanukah, a festival of joy
A holiday, a jolly day, for every girl and boy
Gather ’round the table and let’s have a treat
Happy songs we’ll sing, and latkes we’ll eat

And while we are singing
We’ll think of those days long ago
And then we’ll tell the story of the miracles, glory
And dance by the candles burning low

it was COOL(100%)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Does anyone know where I can find this arrangement? I think it would be a wonderful song for my school's chorus to sing. The chords or sheet music would be helpful. We can sing it by ear as well. but I wanted to get as close as possible to the original chords. Thank you!

Yiddish Version I remember when I was a kid singing this song in Yiddish. Where could that version be available on the Internet? Reply

Chanuka Song I too would love to find this arrangement! What key, can it be performed justly with guitar? These "kids" did a great job! I am but a Christian that is learning of Judaism and this is delightful! Thanks! Reply

Chanukah,holiday music'song Every time watching these children's choir singing, I feel the sense of pride,love,respect for these Jewish kids ,brought up well displined, committed to their faith.

While we're singing we'll think of those days long ago!

I always love to see the joy on singing faces Whatever was said long ago, in this day and age you have yo say there is nothing humanly inappropriate in the choir helping celebrate Chanukah. I too am a gentile but since I was adopted who knows boobe? Let them sing and feel free to enjoy. Reply

I am a Christian, and really enjoyed this video. I am impressed by all the jewish comments made although some of the comments were obviously made by ignorant people. May God bless all the these young lads who gave such a beautiful performance. Reply

Oy Chanukah! I totally agree with Alexandra about the costumes. Top hats? Give me a break. And to "Anonymous" in NY, NY...having girls the same age as these boys singing would NOT constitute hearing WOMEN. Reply
