Episode 10: ‘Tis the season…for assimilation and resistance
December 22, 2008

radio613’s Chanukah show! Malcah and Avi chat about the
“Chanukah Season.” Why is Malcah’s favourite Chanukah song a Christmas song? How do we connect the struggle against destruction of Jewish life, identity, and culture by the ancient Maccabees and our current struggle against assimilation? Lots of fun airing of grievances and Chaunukah stories.
