I just discovered your wonderful podcasts. As a new and proud Jew I am happy to add to my knowledge of the holidays.

Oh, how much fun it was to find out that Woody Guthrie had Jewish
family ties and wrote Chanukah
(Hanukah) songs, as well as other
Jewish holiday songs.

Thank you,
Lorelei

Heidi,
Thank you for letting me be part of your podcast.
I've sent the link around and so many people are enjoying it--from California to Israel and everywhere in between. And I've subscribed so I get it every month.
Happy Hanukkah (soon) to everyone. I'm getting my grater ready.
