Happy Chanukah!

Our rabbis taught*: The mitzvah of Chanukah is [a posting of] “Candlelight” [for] a blogger and his blog.

And the mehadrin is [a posting of] “Candlelight” for each and every [social media site].

And the mehadrin min hamehadrin

Beit Shamai says: The first day, he posts [on] eight [social media sites]. From here on, he decreases as he goes.

And Beit Hillel says: The first day, he posts [on] one [social media site]. From here on, he increases as he goes…

And so, on the off-chance that there’s still someone out there who hasn’t seen this video yet, here it is:

And now you, too, won’t be able to get this song out of your head…



!חג אורים שמח

May you have a very happy Chanukah!


*See BT Shabbat 21b.


  1. Chag sameach - may we all comment and post as we feel free to increase the joy of the people. Or something like that.

  2. ...and may all you chanukas be wet

  3. Leora and Risa - Amen and happy Chanukah to both of you!
