For Hannukah — Mama Doni’s Jewish Holiday Party

posted by Nell Minow

Hannukah is coming early this year!  Get the family ready to celebrate with the first DVD from Mama Doni, with a warm and tuneful introduction to Hannukah, Passover, and Shabbat.  Mama Doni sings and dances through the holidays, including a bluegrass “Chanukah Oh Chanukah” medley sing-along and matzoh, latke, and challah-making demonstrations.  This exciting new soundtrack features 12 original acoustic versions of classic Jewish favorites by Doni Zasloff-Thomas and guitarist Eric Lindberg.

The November Man
Pierce Brosnan knows what it is like to play a spy in a big-budget, glamorous, blockbuster. He was the most urbane of Bonds in four movies.
