Yarmulkes on it! While Adam sandler‘S “The Hanukah Song” has been a holiday stable ever since he first performed it on Saturday Night Live in 1994, Haim gave the number a modern twist this year.

Maya rudolph light up the menorah, ”the Haim sisters – Este, Danielle and Alana – sang their updated version in a Twitter video on Friday, December 3. “The same goes for Japanese breakfast and [Aaron and Bryce] Dessners make the Hora. Guess who eats together at the famous Canter’s Deli? Rashida and Kidada Jones, Eugene and Dan Levy. “

They continued in their song: “Doja catis half Jewish, Chalamet is also half. Put them both together, what a beautiful Jew! So, don’t get Omicronukkah on this lovely lovely Hanukkah. RIP Stephen Sondheimukkah, we love you on this Chanukah. If you really, really want to have a happy, happy, happy Hanukkah! “

After the sisters proclaimed that their musical moment was “really fun,” they captioned their Tweeter, “Sandler, we love you.”

The Wedding singer star, 55, for her part, shared her approval of the group’s update, Tweeter later on Friday, “I love you ladies! You are three badass Jews! See you on tour!

Sandler first shared the holiday tune on the late-night NBC series during his tenure as cast member.

“When I was a kid this time of year always made me feel a bit left out because at school there were so many Christmas carols and all we Jewish children had was the song. “Dreidel, Dreidel, Dreidel”, Murder Mystery actor explained before his debut SNL performance. “So I wrote a brand new Chanukah song for you Jewish kids to sing along to and I hope you like it. “

After more than 25 years of Sandler’s song reigning as the best Hanukkah song, he was more than ready to pass the baton.

“It’s long for a song”, the Uncut Gems the actor said during an interview in December 2019 on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. “If there are other Jews who want to write a new one, that would be great. I would like to share the spirit of Chanukah with you.

The sisters, who are also Jewish, celebrated the Festival of Lights throughout the week via social media with music, freebies, funky hats, and a Planned Parenthood appeal.

“It’s time to light the 8 DAYS OF HAIMUKKAH IS BACK menorah!” a post on their group’s Instagram account read on November 28.

For their fourth day, the musical group wanted to do something special.

“Haimukkah Day 4: This time we’re asking for a giveaway – a link in the stories to donate to @plannedparenthood,” we read on Instagram Friday. “Women’s rights are under attack, like never before. this week the Supreme Court heard oral arguments for Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization, a challenge to a Mississippi law that prohibits abortion at 15 weeks pregnant – which could defeat the right to an abortion currently guaranteed by Roe v. Wade, and almost all abortions have been banned in Texas for 3 months. @plannedparenthood needs donations more than ever. as a bonus, we offer the @canters_deli aprons that we wore on the cover of WIMPIII (signed) !! just comment when you’re done and even better, tag us in your stories with a confirmation of your donation (you can block the amount – anything goes). ”
