Orrin Hatch, the Mormon Senior Senator from Utah, Writes a Song About… Hanukkah?

I know it’s been a while since I’ve done a blog post, but this was just too interesting to pass up.  Yesterday night, a friend showed me this video:

Now, how many Hanukkah songs do you think have been written by a Mormon Senator?  My guess is that that’s the only one.

Tablet Magazine discusses the details of how the song ended up getting written, including an interesting story where Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) called columnist Jeffery Goldberg on Christmas Eve to talk to him about the song that he had written, “Eight Days of Hanukkah”.

It’s quite an interesting story, so check it out.  And the song is pretty catchy too.

Senator Hatch has always been one of my favorite Senators, but I honestly had no idea that Hatch was a songwriter.  My opinion of him went up a little more after seeing this.

And to any of my Jewish readers, have a safe and happy Hanukkah.
