Bohemian Chanukah

The Jewish a cappella group Six13 (previously at Neatorama) has released the video for their 2018 Chanukah anthem. It's a holiday parody of Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" that retells the story of the Maccabean Revolt and details some traditional Chanukah customs. Chanukah (or Hanukkah) begins on December 2 and runs through December 10 this year. -via Boing Boing

From the Jewish Virtual Library:

Judaism does not prohibit writing the Name of God per se; it prohibits only erasing or defacing a Name of God. However, observant Jews avoid writing any Name of God casually because of the risk that the written Name might later be defaced, obliterated or destroyed accidentally or by one who does not know better. Observant Jews avoid writing a Name of God on web sites like this one because there is a risk that someone else will print it out and deface it. To avoid writing the Name, Orthodox Jews (and sometimes other denominations) substitute letters or syllables, for example, writing "G-d" instead of "God."
