About the kashrus of the rap

To the people who felt the style is not Jewish - many of our songs, including those of Sulzer used during the Torah reading in Orthodox services, come from other styles. I think this is part of our being a light to the nations - we relate between HaShem and them, in all their beautiful varieties of expression.

I HAD to listen a second time- it was that good!
And that relevant......

Keep on stayin' strong!

Awesome job

Glad to see Shtar is back making new music. Great song. Great band. Glad to see Aish is using great local Israel talent. Keep it up.

Love it, great way to reach the teens with the new sound. Cause it's all about compromising. So then when we as parents speak of the old traditions and songs they will HEAR what we are saying

The video is extremely inspiring.

amazing Jewish music just didnt like the rap music

I loved the music and the pictures were awesome. Thanks a lot for working so hard to produce such fantastic song for us. I wished there was not rap song inside it. It takes away the holiness of the song. Instead there could have been small parts of music in different languages.
it it just my opinion, thanks a lot for all you do.

Beautiful video with one reservation.

What a joy to see the children singing, dancing and playing! The new song is lively and pertinent, and the group sings melodically. My one reservation regards the fellow in the white shirt. Our rich heritage is deep and filled with joy and meaning. I take exception to adopting a style and dialect that is not Jewish to convey the miraculous Hanukkah miracle. Hag Sameah.

Thanks for the time each one spends sharing with us

(10) Marty, December 11, 2014 10:30 PM

Thank you, Aish, for a very inspiring video! Baruch HaShem it came at exactly the right time, when my candle was burning low. Please HaShem we'll all soon have that new light shining in Zion. Keep up the great work!

Chanukkah Videos

Love the Chanukkah Videos, their all beautiful!

Good,for the most part.

This is rap music which is copy-cat from the black community. I would much rather hear good Jewish music..
If this is infomercial. then it is directed to younger people,
and so I say "so be it". I guess I am just old-fashion!
