You are invited to participate with your child in an event of a lifetime! To celebrate Israel’s 70th anniversary, SDJA has been invited to participate – as one of only 16 locations around the world – in a televised broadcast of a worldwide singing of “Hallelujah.” In the opening scene of the special broadcast (and through the wonders of technology), Israeli citizens and communities around the world will be shown singing together. It gives us goose bumps just to think about it!
Hallelujah was the winning song of the Eurovision Song Contest in 1979. Uniting the nation and the world to sing Hallelujah together will be a symbol of unity, pride and love for the State of Israel. We are so honored and proud to be a part of it.
The song will be recorded in a new arrangement that will include two new verses. Click here to download a copy of the lyrics. We recommend practicing with your child at home prior to the recording. Please join us on Friday, April 13th, 9:30-10:00am on the main steps as the whole school will gather together to be videotaped singing Hallelujah. Join your child in being a part of history in the making!
