Ma’oz Tzur – Rock of Ages

 

Ma'oz tsur yeshu'ati lecha na'eh leshabeach.

Tikon beit tefilati vesham todah nezaveach.

Le'et tachin matbeach mitsar hamnabeach,

'az 'egmor beshir mizmor chanukat hamizbeach.


 

 

 

Chanukah, Oh Chanukah

 

Chanukah, Oh Chanukah, come light the Menorah
Let's have a party, we'll all dance the hora
Gather round the table, we'll all have a treat
Driedel to play with, and latkes to eat.

And while we are playing
The candles are burning bright
One for each night, they shed a sweet light
To remind us of days long ago.
One for each night, they shed a sweet light
To remind us of days long ago.

 

I Have a Little Dreidel

I have a little dreidel,  I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready, then dreidel I shall play!

(Chorus)

Oh dreidel, dreidel, dreidel, I made it out of clay
And when it's dry and ready, Then dreidel I shall play!

It has a lovely body, with legs so short and thin
And when my dreidel's tired, it drops and then I win!

(Chorus)

My dreidel's always playful, it loves to dance and spin
A happy game of dreidel, come play now, let's begin!

(Chorus)

 

Hebrew School Songs

CHS Theme Song

Got no fear about the mocking
My Jewish pride’s forever rocking
Our history will never fade
I've got a soul that is G‑d made

Chorus:
Yes I'm a Jew
A proud one too
As bright as day 
It's my DNA
So shout out loud
My Jewish crowd
A family - forever we'll be
Yes I'm a Jew
A proud one too
Won't stop or stray
It's my DNA
So shout out loud
I feel real proud
Am Yisrael - Forever we'll be

Charged with lighting up the dark
And to reveal our G‑dly spark
Armed with mitzvot - don’t conform
We’ve got a big world to transform 

(Chorus) 

 

Chanukah “Shake it Off”

Cause we're counting up to eight, eight, eight, eight, eight
We escaped an awful fate, fate, fate, fate, fate
We're gonna celebrate, -brate, -brate, -brate, -brate
It's Chanukah, Chanukah!
Light the candles every night, night, night, night, night
And the blessings we'll recite, -cite, -cite, -cite, -cite, -cite
For the festival of light, light, light, light, light
It's Chanukah, Chanukah!

..........

Cause we're counting up to eight, eight, eight, eight, eight
We escaped an awful fate, fate, fate, fate, fate
Yeah that's how we celebrate, -brate, -brate, -brate, -brate
It's Chanukah, Chanukah!
The candles gonna burn, burn, burn, burn, burn
And the dreidel's gonna turn, turn, turn, turn, turn
Got some history to learn, learn, learn, learn, learn
For Chanukah, Chanukah!
