Yankel the Red Nose Dreidel (sung to the tune of Rudolph)

Original Chanukah carol by Rabbi Royi Shaffin

Yankel the red nose dreidel

Had a very shiny nose

And if you ever saw it

You would even say it glowed

All of the other dreidels

Used to laugh and call him names

They never let poor Yankel

Join in any dreidel games

Then one foggy Chanukah eve

Kids sat down to play

Yankel with your nose so bright

Won’t you lead our games tonight

Then how the dreidels loved him

And they shouted out with glee

Yankel the red nose dreidel

You’ll go down in history

  1. Very funny! Very cute! Have a latke on me. Hanukkah won’t be the same this year without y’all. I bought Hannukkal laser lights for front yard.
