Lisa Loeb studied, consulted with a rabbi and spent a lot of time working on her most recently released Hanukkah song, Light, released last year.

She's continuing her tradition of honoring the holiday with music by performing at the Skirball Cultural Center's Hanukkah Family Festival this upcoming weekend. 

Loeb and Jennifer Maxcy, Head of Family Programs and Community Engagement at the Skirball, join Alex Cohen to talk about the holiday as well as the upcoming event.
