Tomorrow, Hanukkah begins here in Fluville and everywhere else as well. Once again, we'll be hosting holiday reflections from Jewish writers on Jewish artists. That's right, Jew on Jew action right here at the Boogie Woogie Flu. The excitement starts tomorrow at sundown, Brooklyn Standard Time, and will continue for eight nights. In the meantime, here's a holiday favorite by a non-Jew, who married a Jew, and wrote a handful of Jewish songs for his Jewish children.
