Matisyahu has made a big splash in the news with his new Chanukah single. I tried watching it but was shocked to see a half-dressed woman and him dressed up in a santa suit.
I understand the appeal to secular Jews and non-Jews, but the fact is, this kind of action takes the message of Chanuka and drags in down to the lowest of levels. The miracle of Chanukah is that the oil remained pure. The Torah was not lowered to worldly standards. The Godly wisdom remained Godly and holy, and was not brought down into the mud. The Greeks are יון in hebrew. the yud is chochma, the vov is hamshacha downward into the world and the final nun is that they took G-dly chochma and made it impure.
To make a video like this is to make fun of frum Jews, unfortunately, and I think it was a big mistake on the part of Matisyahu and Co.
This Chanukah, let's illuminate the world with the light of Torah and Mitvohs.
Chanukah starts tonight! May Moshiach come when we light the first candle tonight!
