PressHereNow.comHanukkah, the Jewish Festival of Lights, started Wednesday night and runs for eight days.  In honor of the holiday, Billboard magazine has compiled a list of the Top 30 Jewish Musicians, based on the impact they've had on the pop charts over the years. 

While the top three spots on the list go to legends -- Billy Joel, Neil Diamond and Barbra Streisand -- Pink, whose mom is Jewish, ranks #4.  Former American Idol judge and pop star Paula Abdul is in at #6, while Maroon 5's Adam Levine comes in at #8.  Crooner Michael Bolton and "Captain Jack Sparrow" singer is #9. Here's a sampling of the rest of the list:

12. "Tell It to My Heart" singer Taylor Dayne
17. Drake (his mom's Jewish)
29. Lenny Kravitz (his dad's Jewish)
30. David Guetta (his dad's Jewish)
