So, you don't understand Hanukkah?

To help you understand Hanukkah better, here is a musical version, provided by the irrepresible improvisational humor group, HaHafuch:
Who or what is this singing group that calls itself "HaHafuch?" They describe themselves as Israel’s premiere English-speaking comedy troupe.
“Our goal is to make people see the funny side of life in Israel,” they explain. ”We are the only comedy troupe bringing humor to an English-speaking audience in their native tongue; of course Israelis can always have a laugh too. Remember, Israel is funny. And if you don’t think so then you haven’t seen our show.
”It seems like every time you open the newspaper, turn on the news, or listen to the radio, in any country, even Israel, all you hear about is politics or prisoner swaps. But living in Israel is more than what you see on CNN.
“Our comedy troupe provides the other side of Israeli life, the daily dramas of bureaucracy, cafes, traffic jams, political troubles and more. And we do it through humor using improvisation, sketches, videos and music to let the world know that it’s OK to laugh at Israel and in fact there are a lot of funny things happening here.
”We do public performances, private parties, comedy improvisation workshops, special workshops for companies, weddings, Bar and Bat-Mitzvahs, and pretty much anything you can think of…we’ll even just come over and hang out…if you pay us.”
