Celebrate the Jewish festival of lights with WRTI on Sunday, December 17th from 3 to 5 pm.

Each night as Jews around the world observe Hanukkah—the eight-day Festival of Lights—an age-old song, Maoz Tsur ("Rock of Ages"), is sung after the lighting of the candles on the menorah.  Just before Hanukkah last year, Rabbi David Gerber of Congregation Beth Or in Maple Glen, PA gave Meridee Duddleston some insight into the history and meaning of the hymn.
