Although my family is not of Chabad descent, I have been enthralled by the Chabad Haneiros Hallalu since I first heard it as a little child on “Hupp Cossack.”
As you probably know, the origins of this Chabad Masterpiece is uncertain, (I have done my research) it is believed to have been composed by the Talmidim of the “Maharash”, the 4th Rebbe of Chabad-Lubavitch. The Rebbe was not well. He would come out for Neiros Chanukah. The Chasdim composed a long song for Hanieros Halalu so that he would stay out longer!
Not a Chanukah goes by without me and my family signing this mesmerizing tune!
I have wanted to perform this piece live at a wedding for the past 2-3 years. Its not a simple feat. It needs the right setting. The right singer. The perfect accompaniment.
This year, Dec 23rd, (Zos Chanukah), we finally did it! At a wedding of a very close friend of mine, performing was Shloime Daskal, The Mezamrim Choir led by Chilu Posen accompanied by Blue Melody. Arranged by Eli Lax.
