Ain’t no Hanukkah song like a Hanukkah song sung by Hasidic pop giant Lipa Schmeltzer (alas, it’s only a promo, so it gets cut off a little abruptly):

Sure, Lipa may not top the pop charts like Hasidic reggae phenom Matisyahu. But Matisyahu isn’t nearly as much zany fun. (Exhibit A: Check Lipa out promoting the “Big Event” charity concert — which sparked a big brouhaha earlier this year after it was canceled following complaints by rabbis who warned it was liable to cause “ribaldry and lightheadedness.”)
