Chanukah is one of the Jewish holidays during which it is traditional to sing Hallel, Psalms 113 to 118. In Chanukah Lights: Psalms of Hallel, Rabbi Yael Levy offers an e-book translation of the psalms and suggestions for using them to enhance your Chanukah practice. Published via, the e-book can be downloaded in a variety of formats, and is

compatible with e-reading devices such Apple's iPad/iBooks (pictured here), Kindle, Nook, and most e-reading apps. It also can be purchased on Amazon. The cost: $4.99.

“Focusing on Hallel as part of our Chanukah practice can help us stand into our strength and bring ourselves forward for the well-being of all,” says Rabbi Yael. (The eight days of Chanukah begin on the evening of Tuesday, December 16 and end on Wednesday evening, December 24.)

The psalms of Hallel give thanks for the wonders of creation and acknowledge the beauty and the gifts of life. Chanukah Lights also includes suggestions for using the Psalms as part of a mindfulness Chanukah practice. If you'd like to share the e-book with others, Smashwords offers a gift purchase option, which allows you to purchase e-books for others.

While the e-book's suggestions for practice are keyed to Chanukah, the translation of the psalms can be used for all the holidays at which Hallel is sung: each morning of Chanukah, Pesach, Shavuot and Sukkot and the first day of each new month except the month of Tishrei, which is Rosh HaShanah.
