Benny Friedman - Bonei Olam Vzakeini - 25,000 Candles

Last February, the Vzakeini Song by Bonei Olam captured hearts. Released as an introduction to Bonei Olam’s V’zakeini Campaign, the concept was simple. Every woman who joins donates $1 towards a couple’s infertility treatment as they light their Shabbos candles and prays for the couple’s success. Since its release, so many women joined that 1,000 became 5,000, and then 10,000, 18,000 and 25,000 thousand hearts strong.

Miriam Israeli, the composer and songwriter was so inspired when the V’zakeini movement grew to 25,000, that she wrote a second song in celebration. Celebrating 25,000 Jewish women across the world who join together each Friday night and storm the heavens.

Because there’s a power that can’t be undone.

Since the song was written, over 28,000 women have joined the Vzakeini project and V’zakeini continues to bring a closeness between women who don’t know each other but who are sisters, a joined force storming the gates above. From these weekly prayers and treatments, there are miracles happening already as couples share their good news of successful treatment.

25,000 candles (lyrics)

For so many years they've been waiting
Now finally they're celebrating
It's a girl it's a boy
It's a bundle of joy
A baby is born mazel tov

For so many years they'd imagined
The miracle finally happened
All the prayers that were said
All the tears that were shed
Brought down the blessing from above

For there's a power that can't be undone
When we unite in a cause
It's a powerful force
And all the gates will open up

25,000 candles burn
25,000 hearts that yearn
Praying for another
To be a mother
Our deepest plea

25,000 gave their share
25,000 really care
It's our ambition
We've got a mission
Vizakeini
Vizakeini

You're making the circle grow wider
You're helping the world become brighter
You're a link in the chain
To bring an end to the pain
You fill our nation with light

The number of candles keeps growing
The light of our children keeps glowing
And as you whisper a prayer
For a sister out there
You're helping drive away the night

For there's a power that can't be undone
When we unite in a cause
It's a powerful force
And all the gates will open up

25,000 candles burn
25,000 hearts that yearn
Praying for another
To be a mother
Our deepest plea

25,000 gave their share
25,000 really care
It's our ambition
We've got a mission
Vizakeini

(Sax)

Tune of Vizakeini for one chorus + harmony

25,000 candles burn
25,000 hearts that yearn
Praying for another
To be a mother
Our deepest plea

25,000 gave their share
25,000 really care
It's our ambition
We've got a mission
Vizakeini

25,000 candles bright
How many more can we ignite
Illuminating
As we're creating
Eternity

25,000, we've just begun
Let's keep on adding one by one
We're on a mission
It's our ambition
Vizakeini
