Pop Rock Band HAIM Releases Hanukkah Holiday Song About Latkas, Manischewitz Wine and the Maccabees
Popular American pop rock band HAIM celebrated the first night of Hanukkah on Tuesday with a new song that pays homage to the Festival of Lights.
The trio of Jewish sisters uploaded a video onto Twitter that shows Este Haim playing a bass guitar and singing in the new track, “Shred me like a potato latke/ You be the Manischewitz/ And I’ll be the vodka/ Like a page out of the Torah/ You light me up like I’m a menorah.” She also sings about “courageous Maccabees” and spinning dreidels, before her sisters and fellow band members, Danielle and Alana Haim, join in with a “Light me up like I’m a menorah” refrain.
The band posted the video along with the message “First night of Haimukkah. Sandler, we’re coming for you,” referencing Adam Sandler and his famous “Hanukkah Song.”
