Celebrate Hanukkah and other festive holidays with this medley of klezmer, reggae, ska and more from the Jewish diaspora. Le chaim! Includes a matzoh ball recipe.

From ancient times to the modern era, celebration has evoked a thousand sounds across the world’s Jewish communities. The songs that accompany these moments of joy and reflection take different forms, and embrace unexpected genres across the Jewish Diaspora. From Moldava to Uganda, tango to ska, A Jewish Celebration chronicles the upbeat diversity of global Jewish music.

Featuring rollicking tracks from hip bands like Golem (“School of Dance”) and Kayama (the Bob Marley-esque “Vehistakel”), the collection spans many eras and geographic regions. Classics also abound, from a graceful interpretation of the Ladino Hannukah favorite, “Ochos Kandelikas,” sung by Alisa Fineman; the always fun “Hava Nagila” (as Ben Rudnick & Friends kick up their heels); to dreydl-spinning good times (Klezmer Conservatory Band’s version of “The Dreydl Song” and Julie Silver’s bossa nova version of “S'Vivon Sov, Sov, Sov.”)
