Ilene Safyan and Margie Rosenthal have shared their love of music with audiences of all ages for over 20 years. Brought together by a mutual love of Jewish music, they joined forces in 1979 and have been singing together ever since.
They are known nationally as engaging performers whose warmth and personality match their lyrical voices. They are recognized for their warm harmonies, unique musical arrangements and their ability to captivate audiences, young and old. They are enthusiastic and versatile and are as comfortable singing in Hebrew as they are singing Yiddish or English.
Chanukah is a holiday celebrated in the home. The best Chanukah music, like the best family celebration, is a fusion of old traditions, new ideas, and timeless values. The music on this compact disc is a blend of old and new melodies and words, but the musical themes of freedom and light are timeless.
