The Sun Has Not Set

The Rebbe’s physical passing occurred on the 3rd of Tammuz, 5754 (June 12, 1994), a date of unique historical significance.

As recorded in the book of Joshua, it was on the 3rd of Tammuz when Joshua, leading the Jewish army in the initial conquest of the land of Israel against the Giboanites, prayed to G-d to delay the sunset, giving his men additional time to defeat the enemy.

The third of Tammuz is thus recorded in the Torah as “the day the sun did not set.” This biographical song is appropriately entitled “The Sun Has Not Set” in recognition of the Rebbe’s continued influence and impact on the lives of people all over the world.

It traces the Rebbe’s youth, marriage, and transition from Europe to the United States, and the mission he undertook to revitalize Jewish life in the wake of the Holocaust.

CHANALE FELLIG- HAREL,
LARRY GATES, BENTZI MARCUS

Born in Nikolaev in 1902
Raised by his parents who already knew
Heaven sent was this son
Special his role
And all of man would rejoice with his precious soul

A heart so young and tender
Extraordinary mind
Although still a child he envisioned a time
When his beloved people are no longer oppressed
When we would thank G-d
For every hardship and test

Chorus:
The it sun has not set
See it’s light and don’t forget
His vision and his dream
So much closer than it seems
Open your eyes, see beyond the disguise
One single deed is all we need

A daughter of royalty his partner his queen
Modestly, graciously devoted to him
For everything he stood for
For his every cause
A woman of valor,of virtue she was

From the fires of Europe to freedom they sailed
Where nothing is sacred, and all is for sale
Timeless traditions, the Jewish way
Have no place in America, is what they tried to say

CHORUS:

The media declared
Judaism’s end
But on the gold paved streets
He could see a new trend

He slowly built an army
Of soldiers who would fight
To find that spirit
And help it to ignite

No time to rest so many to bless
His voice just didn’t cease
To look for a way, to bring on the day
When the whole world’s at peace

Then suddenly still was his voice as he prayed
And though we miss it until this day
It will never fade
Chorus
