Fifth Grade’s Hanukkah Music Video Hit!

by Temple Isaiah Religious School

Next Hanukkah, don’t be surprised if Adra’s fifth graders find their new music video’s gone viral.

In the tradition of the 2010 Hanukkah viral video hit Candlelight by the Maccabeats, Adra’s fifth grade class wanted to take their Hanukkah message viral! The class worked together to choose songs to parody, write lyrics that told a story about Hanukkah, and to create the vision for their video.

Their awesome video is below. (Scroll down for the lyrics.)


Part One

It’s Hanukkah
(a Hanukkah parody of “Friday” by Rebecca Black)

It’s Hanukkah, Hanukkah
Gotta light the candles
Everybody’s sitting with Judah Maccabee

Spinning and spinning the dreidel
Spinning and spinning the dreidel
Fun, fun, fun, fun – looking forward to eating Gelt!

Part Two

Last Hanukkah
(a Hanukkah parody of “Last Friday Night” by Katy Perry)

There’s a menorah in my room
There’s a lot of candles used
Wax is all over the floor
And I cannot wait for more!

Oil splattered on the wall
Latkes covering the hall
There is lots of applesauce
But the sour cream is lost !?

Playing dreidel all night, but its alight. Still have Gelt! Ok!

Gimmel gets it all, but Shin put one in. Oh Well, too bad!

Last Hanukkah,
Spin my dreidel round and round
Hope that it won’t touch the ground
Oh, my sour cream is found!

Last Hanukkah,
We were fighting off the Greeks
Judah and the Maccabees
They were fighting for real peace
This Hanukkah,
7 days left in – this Hanukkah!

T.G.I.H (Thank God It’s Hanukkah)
