The Power of Light
December 14, 2010

Last year’s podcast featuring readings of Isaac Bashevis Singer’s short Chanukah stories was quite popular. As such, we decided to present another set from Singer’s “The Power of Light: 8 Stories for Hanukkah”. Yes, we’re now in the nearly year long period of non-Chanukah, but we promise that the stories were read and recorded during this year’s chag ha’urim.

Here they are in segments with accompanying music by The Klezmer Conservatory Band, Andy Statman, Ot Azoj, and Shirim Klezmer Orchestra:
