Arutz 7's Hebrew web site has a great series of videos for Chanukah featuring modern cool Israeli musicians. Groovy, funky treatments of Sivivon Sov Sov Sov, and Al HaNissim are a great alterative to children's choirs. These songs are also in rotation on Israel National Radio's English langague live stream.
