Jewish Song of the Week: ‘More Like a Candle’ by Eric Hunker

Chanukah time is truly magical — when the days are darkest, we light tons of candles and fill our homes with sweet light! The imagery and symbolism of ‘light’ has inspired a TON of amazing contemporary Chanukah songs, including this beautiful tune from my friend Eric Hunker. “More Like a Candle” captures what it means to shine our light with the purpose of spreading it to others, which is what Chanukah is ALL about. Happy Festival of Lights, y’all — happy Chanukah!
