A Chanukah Video Highlight

Yes We Can Chanukah

December 08, 2010:
The 8th and final Night of Chanukah

Chabad put out a series of promotional videos for Chanukah 2008 that were inspired by the “Yes We Can” video created Will.I.Am (which in turn was inspired by a speech given by Barack Obama). It seems each Chabad center had their own version. This version is for Chabad Poway (Ca). Other versions included Chabad Malibu (Ca) and Chabad Stony Brook (NY)

And even though these are from a few years ago I felt that they were very inspiring and a great way to finish up Chanukah 2010. With a little “Hope.”

Lyrics after the jump…

It was the bold encouragement offered by Moses to a nation yearning for freedom

Yes, we can!

It was the phrase that kept our hopes alive during historys harshest times

Yes we can

Yes we can

It was spoken defiantly to those wishing to stamp out religious freedoms

Yes we can

When triumph seemed beyond reach; G-ds miracle was not. In hidden caves, attics and cellars His people courageously whispered:

Yes He can

THIS was the message that G-d sent the world when a small team of Maccabees vanquished an entire army. Restoring unity, freedom and hope.

Yes we can

Yes we can

And was the comforting answer to the girl in Communist Russia who wondered: Will the Menorah ever openly shine in my life?

Yes. We. Can.

Yes. We. Can.

Yes. We. Can.

On Chanukah we celebrate freedom we celebrate with pride we celebrate in public, in the open because we can!

Because we can!

Because we can!

Whether you lit the menorah last year, or 20 years ago celebrate this Chanukah with family celebrate with Chabad
