"Haneiros Halalu" Chanukah Live 1991

“Chanukah Live”: an unprecedented effort in sharing the light of Chanukah with the world.

Based out of Chabad Lubavitcher headquarters in NY, Chanukah candles were kindled at several locations in a simultaneously broadcast event via satellite, which aired  on giant screens throughout the world .

Bringing together different continents to celebrate as one, this was technologically speaking, a monumental undertaking at the time. A group of resourceful Chassidim brought the idea to the Lubavitcher Rebbe and received his enthusiastic blessing.

This clip shows the Rebbe taking part in one such monumental rally in 5751/1990 as Chassidim around the world energetically respond to the Rebbe’s encouragement.

A clip of the Rebbe interacting with Paris, France via live satellite hookup, during "Chanukah Live" 1990 or 1991 (seems like 91).
