(Sung to the “12 Days of Christmas.”)
On the eighth day of Chanukah, my true love gave to me,
Eight burning candles,
Seven praying Rabbis,
Six Jewish Mothers,
Five bowls of chicken soup.
Four spinning dreidels,
Three singing Cantors,
Two mitzvah balls, and
A bagel with some creamed cheese!
(A generous borrowing from a greeting card I read decades ago.)
