You gotta see the Y-Stud’s soul-stirring new Hanukkah music video

Two thousand years ago, the Maccabees rose up to defend and battle against the assimilationist tendencies that penetrated the Jewish people along with the anti-Jewish activities of the Greeks.

This musical video attempts to bring the spirit of Chanukah to the modern-day person in the Upper West Side.

Great son, great music, and interesting take on the Chanukah message.

Lyrics:
Maoz Tzur Yeshuati
Lecha Naeh L’ Shabeach

You’re broken down and tired
Of living life on a merry-go-round
And you can’t find the fighter
But I see it in you, so we gonna walk it out
And move mountains
And walk it out
And move mountains

And I’ll rise up
Rise like the day
I’ll rise up
I’ll rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times again
For you
For you
For you
For you

And when the silence isn’t quiet
And it feels like it’s getting hard to breathe
I know I know you feel like dying
But I promise we’ll take the world to its feet
And move mountains
And move mountains, Yeah!

I’ll rise up
Rise like the day
I’ll rise up
Rise unafraid
I’ll rise up
And I’ll do it a thousand times
For you (Maoz Tzur Yeshuati)
For you (Lecha Na’eh L’shabeiach)
For you (Tikon Beit T’filati)
For you (V’sham Todah N’abeiach)

Maoz Tzur Yeshuati
Lecha Naeh L’ Shabeach

All we need, all we need is hope (Tikon Beit T’filati)
And for that, we have each other (V’sham Todah)
And for that, we have each other (N’zabeiach)
We will rise
We will rise
We will rise
We’ll rise

We’ll rise up
Rise like the day
We’ll rise up
Rise unafraid
We’ll rise up
We’ll do it a thousand times again

And we’ll rise up
Rise like the day
We’ll rise up
We’ll rise unafraid
We’ll rise up
We’ll do it a thousand times again
For you (Az Egmor)
For you (V’shir Mizmor)
For you
For you

Happy Hanukkah!
