Festival of Lights


In those days the menorah in the temple at Jerusalem was rekindled and the house of God rededicated.
Here is the traditional song of the Festival of Lights sung while lighting the menorah. and a video of the Sephardi  version of the melody.

Rock of Ages let our song,
Praise thy saving power;
Thou amidst the raging foes,
Wast our sheltering tower.
Furiously they assailed us,
But Thine arm availed us
And Thy word broke their sword,

When our own strength failed us.
And Thy word broke their sword,
When our own strength failed us.
