‘Chanukah’ Song Aids Terror Victims

(Courtesy of Zaka) A new, original song titled “Chanukah” will drop on Dec. 7, the first night of the Festival of Lights. It’s also precisely 60 days after the tragedy that befell Israeli civilians on Oct. 7 and any proceeds from the song will benefit Jerusalem-based Zaka, whose paramedics are on call in Israel.

“Chanukah” was co-written by two Torah Academy of Bergen County alumni, Yisroel Meth of Clifton, a freshman at Touro University, and Rafi Suss of Teaneck, who attends Aish HaTorah in Jerusalem. Both boys have substantial followings on Spotify and other digital music platforms.

“During Chanukah,” said Meth, “we are reminded how Hashem takes the light that we bring and expands it, making it shine and last far beyond what we can imagine. Rafi and I stand firmly with our fellow Jews in Israel and hope to add a little extra light this holiday season with our music. We should all merit to see miracles and the final redemption.”

Meth, an 18-year-old multi-instrumentalist, was recently signed to Wildwood Productions, an independent record label headquartered in New York. Suss, who performs the vocals on “Chanukah,” is also a keyboardist.

Founded in 1995, Zaka is Israel’s dominant non-governmental rescue and recovery organization, with over 3,000 volunteers deployed around the country who are on call 24/7 to respond to any terror attack, disaster or accident immediately, professionally and with the necessary equipment.
