Matisyahu, the acclaimed Jewish rapper who made waves late last year when he shaved his beard, recently released a new song for  Hanukkah. All proceeds of the song, appropriately titled, “Happy Hanukkah,” are being donated to Hurricane Sandy relief through the end of the holiday.

“I am from New York and wanted to give back to my incredible community in the wake of Hurricane Sandy,” said Matisyahu. Donations from the song will continue to benefit The Jewish Federations of North America and The Robin Hood Foundation until the end of Hanukkah on December 16.

On December 8, Matisyahu will kick off his sixth annual “Festival of Light” tour.
