There may very few great Chanukah songs, but as Billboard magazine thoughtfully points out, “Christmas classics may vastly out-number Hanukkah hits, but there's been no shortage of Jewish artists that have topped the Billboard charts over the years.”

In celebration of the Festival of Lights, the legendary music chart has released a list of ‘The Top 30 Jewish Musicians’ of all time. The list features classic musicians such as Bob Dylan, Donald Fagen (Steely Dan), Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits), and Carole King, and modern artists including Adam Levine (Maroon 5), David Guetta, and Drake.
