Behind the Song & Video, Shine a Little Light.

Despite facing one of life's most difficult challenges, Rabbi Yitzi Hurwitz continues to inspire all those who come in contact with him to greater joy and faith. Diagnosed four years ago with bulbar onset, a dreaded form of ALS, "Rabbi Yitzi", as he is affectionally known, is now 95% paralyzed and no longer able to speak or breathe on his own.

Before his diagnosis, Rabbi Yitzi, his wife Dina and their seven children, were Chabad emissaries in Temecula, California for 14 years.

You can help Yitzi shine a little light by giving what you can at

Can’t you see
I’m trying to be
All that you
want of me

But it’s so cold now
It’s so dark here
What could I do
It’s not very clear


Shine a little light
Show us the way
Lead us to
a brighter day

Shine a little light
Show us the way
Lead us to a brighter day

If I’m a little light
You’re a little light
Together we are
So very bright

A little light here
A little light there
See the smiles
It’s so very clear



When we stand together as one,
there's nothing that we cant do
so lets lead the way,
to a brighter day
and the whole world will join along

We can bring a brighter day
for everyone,
it's only up to me and you
we can see it, we all believe it,
so let us shine our light right now..


Shine a little light
Show us the way
Lead us to
a brighter day

Shine a little light
Show us the way
Lead us to a brighter day
