And this has stood by our fathers and us, for not just one rose against us to annihilate us, but in every generation there are those who rise to annihilate us. And the Holy One Blessed is He saves us from their hands.

HEAVEN ON EARTH! Beautiful song and great for the praise of G-d.

It is lovely to hear the voice of the young lad praising Our Father in Heaven.

Those who hate His people will come to ruin; it is better for man to do Teshuvah (repentance) and come home to regain the lost past.

Great work. Shalom. Reply

The tune Perhaps the Rebbe introduced this because it was a niggun from Poland? I do not know the answer, but someone else may. Reply

Loudly and with Joy According to what I read this verse has to be said loudly and with Joy. This version sounds sad. Reply

Educational My son and I looked at the web site for a school project he was doing. I give this web site 10/10 for children. He enjoyed all the interactive features of the site and so did I. We are not Jewish and both of us enjoyed being educated on Judaism. What a beautiful religion : ) Reply
