This Thursday begins the 8 days of Hanukkah, a festival of lights and a celebration of the triumph of unity over discord that Jews have celebrated for thousands of years. Historically, it is story of a miraculous victory of Maccabeean Jews over the Greeks and the liberation of the Jewish temple. Symbolically, it can be seen as a prevailing of faith and the courage to be authentic in the face of overwhelming odds.

Each year Jews light the Menorah candles and shine light into a dark world and remind one another that the war is not over but that our inner light must rise up and shine against darkness, evil, and indifference.

The Jazz world has been gifted with exceptional musicians from the Jewish faith both from the U.S. and Israel. The Jazz River presents its second annual Hanukkah celebration featuring traditional and modern music from the worlds of jazz and bright moments, big and small in our lives.

Tune in Sunday, December 13, at 5 pm on the fourth day of Hanukkah for this program for the soul and spirit. Only on KUVO JAZZ.
