Holocaust Remembrance Day (Yom HaShoah) is commemorated in Israel and by Jews worldwide in the month of April, on the 28 Nissan in the Jewish calendar, the anniversary of the Warsaw ghetto uprising in 1943.  For more on Yom Ha’Shoah, click here.

We share this video of Holocaust survivors and their families singing Ofra Hazza’s “Hai” to honor the victims and survivors of the Shoah.

 

The chorus:

Alive, alive, alive

Yes I am alive

This is the song that grandfather

Sang yesterday to father

And today it is me.

I am still alive, alive, alive,

The people of Israel is alive.

This is the song that grandfather

Sang yesterday to father

And today it is me.

Hai, hai, hai

Ken ani od hai.

Ze ha’shir she’sabba

Shar etmol le’abba

Ve’hayom ani. 

Ani od hai, hai, hai

Am Yisrael hai.

Ze ha’sher she’sabba

Shar etmol le’abba

Ve’hayom ani.

 

 

 

חַי, חַי, חַי
כֵן, אֲנִי עוֹד חַי
זֶה הַשִׁיר שְׁסַבָא
שַׁר אֶתְמוֹל לְאַבָא
וְהַיוֹם אֲנֹי

 

אֲנִי עוֹד חַי, חַי, חַי
עַם יִשׂרָאֵל חַי
זֶה הַשׁיר שֶׁסַבָא
שַׁר אֶתְמוֹל לְאַבָא
וְהַיוֹם אֲנִי
