Children and their parents gathered in 770 on Sunday for a ‘Chanukah Live’ rally, broadcast from numerous locations around the globe.
The program began with the 12 pessukim, each one said by a child in a different country. The pessukim were followed by a Sicha of the Rebbe, said by Chanukah Live 5752. A video was then played of Chief Rabbi of Tzfas Rabbi Shmuel Eliyahu, whose father, Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu spoke at Chanukah Live 5752. Rabbi Eliyahu spoke about the message of Chanukah and told the children to always increase in spreading light.
The broadcast then showed Menorah lightings around the world, beginning with Kfar Chabad, continuing with Johannesburg, South Africa, continuing to the Kossel and Chevron in Eretz Yisroel and many other locations other locations around the globe.
Concluding the event was the lighting of the menorah in 770 and a rousing ‘Haneiros Halalu’ sung by all the children present and accompanied by a three peice band.
