Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah! For some terrific celebratory music, I suggest the Idelsohn Society's Hanukkah Mix, featuring the likes of Gershon Kingsley, Milton Berle, Johnny Mathis, Neil Diamond, Woody Guthrie, and a dozen more greats.
Idelsohn Society is a non-profit dedicated to the musicology of great old Jewish music. This month, they've opened a pop-up Jewish record store in San Francisco where they're hosting a tremendous line-up of live performances and events. (Boing Boing is honored to be the media sponsor!)

All the events are free. Donations requested.
