7,751 videos to celebrate the Jewish story that unite us now.


Finally here!!! This video has been a long time in the making…even though this past year has been difficult, if we learn anything from the Megillah, it is that we can not only survive, but flourish even when things are tough!

On a personal note, having found my woman of valour during Corona, Chaya Borochov, this song is dedicated to our Women of Valour in Am Yisrael! Just like Hashem saved the Jews in the days of Achashverosh, thanks to Esther`s actions, we see countless times in our history, that thanks to strong, courageous women we have been saved many times!

We hope you love hearing this song as much as we loved making it, and we would love for you to celebrate Purim with us, by sharing this video with your loved ones, and let us know how you can be an “Esther Too”.

We welcome any pictures and videos of how you are being an Esther, in ways big or small, and may even feature you in an upcoming post to share more light and positivity! Send to [email protected] with the hashtag below!

Lyrics:

Verse 1

She was an orphaned child
Raised by Mordechai the Jew
Became the Queen when Haman was schemin boo oo

She had the throne life
And risked her own life to save us
And now we’re all good, thanks
to God and Esther’s strength
Years ago

Chorus 1

Cause girls like her show what a Jew can be
Comes down to what you do
You can be Esther too, yeah yeah
Girls like her throughout our history
They have always come through
And show what a girl can do, yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Show what a girl can do, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Show what a girl can do

Verse 2

And now it’s purim time
And we’re pourin’ wine, in costume
We read the story
Of Esther’s glory ooh ooh

Background:
שושנת יעקב
צהלה ושמחה
בראותם יחד
תכלת מרדכי

Yeah we survived the night
When she turned the tide
And saved us
And now we’re all good thanks,
to God and Esther’s strength
Years ago

Chorus 2

Cause girls like her show what a Jew can be
Comes down to what you do
You can be Esther too, yeah yeah
Girls like her throughout our history
They have always come through
And show what a girl can do, yeah yeah

Shows what a girl can do, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Shows what a girl can do yeah yeah

Maybe you look to Sarah
Maybe you look to Devorah
Maybe you look to your grandma or mother 

Maybe it’s Golda for you
Or else Gal Gadot is good too
So many wonderful women of valour

Rap

Very long ago there was a threat to our nation
am yisrael was facing annihilation
Haman said look at those Jews, they’re too crazy
Let’s kill them all because mordechai won’t obey me

Then Esther came and said, that’s enough
Sorry Haman, but you’re time is up

You gonna wipe us out? Hardly, hardly
We won the fight now let’s party, party

Where would be without our Jewish Women
Always staying pure when the nation was sinning
In Egypt their faith was strong
By the egel they did no wrong

We’re singing
Acheinu kol bet Yisrael – we’re all brothers
But now let’s hear it for our sisters and mothers

So let us say it here real loud and proud
Eshet chayil, where are you to be found

Chorus 3

Cause girls like her show what a Jew can be
Comes down to what you do
You can be an Esther too, yeah yeah
Girls like her throughout our history
They have always come through
And show what a girl can do, yeah yeah

Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Shows what a girl can do, yeah yeah
Yeah yeah yeah, yeah yeah yeah
Shows what a girl can do yeah yeah

חג פורים, חג גדול ליהודים, מסכות רעשנים, שירים וריקודים
yeah yeah
