Gad Elbaz and Holocaust Survivor Band Spread Chanukah Joy with Let the Light “Shine On”

General, Music, Videos — By on December 15, 2017 11:21 am

Just in time for Chanukah comes the latest upbeat release from the Holocaust Survivor Band, a triumphant song of survival titled Let the Light Shine On. With music and lyrics by prolific songstress Cecelia Margules, Let the Light Shine On pairs Israeli superstar Gad Elbaz with concentration camp survivors Saul Dreier, Ruby Sosnowicz, and the newest member of the team, Morris Dan, as they take their uplifting message to the Brandenburg Gate, once a symbol of Nazi power.

With footage shot at the Brandenburg Gate and the Berlin-Grunewald railway station, the last stop for many on their way to Auschwitz and Theresienstadt, Let the Light Shine On captures the jubilant essence of the Holocaust Survivor Band whose members never dreamed that after living through unspeakable horrors, they would one day return to the lion’s den and sing joyously about the eternity of the Jewish people.

Much like the Chanukah lights which symbolize the Jewish nation’s victory over a seemingly invincible enemy, the Holocaust Survivor Band is a living reminder that even in our darkest hours, the Jewish spirit continues to shine brightly.

“Their survival inspires us to see the light at the end of each one’s tunnel,” explained director Daniel Finkelman, who has collaborated with the band on several successful projects.

Co-executive produced by Arie Taykan and Sylvia Kahana, Let the Light Shine On is co-directed by Aharon Orian with cinematography by David Orian. A musical Chanukah gift that fills the heart and warms the soul, Let the Light Shine On empowers Elbaz and the Holocaust Survivor Band to, like the Maccabees, conquer hate and destruction with messages of love, peace and optimism.

—– Lyrics —–
THROUGH THE LONG AND DARKEST TIMES WE FOUND THE STRENGTH TO BEAR

WITH THE DAWN PAST THE RAGING STORM
THE LIGHT APPEARS ONCE MORE

AS THE STORY OF ANCIENT MIRACLES MAGICALLY UNFOLDS THE LIGHT OF EIGHT CANDLES REVIVES THE FLAME OF HOPE

CHORUS
שלא שלא יכבה שלא יכבה נרו לעולם ועד
שלא שלא יכבה שלא יכבה נרו לעולם ועד
LET THE LIGHT SHINE ON
LET THE LIGHT SHINE ON
SHINE FOREVER MORE

AND THE FEW FOUGHT THE MANY THE WEAK DEFIED THE STRONG
THE RIGHTEOUS DUELED WITH EVIL WITH THE HAND OF G-D, WE WON

AND WE FACED A BITTER ENEMY REKINDLED BY OUR FAITH
AND THE SPIRIT OF (OUR) YESTERDAY STRENGTHENS OUR WORLD TODA

CHORUS

AND THE CANDLES IN THE NIGHT CELEBRATE THE LIGHT
AS WE SHARE IN THE GLOW THAT SHINES IN OUR EYES
