The light of Hanukkah is a universal blessing that the Jewish people have brought to the world. The realization that every person in this world is a light in the world – through their soul – no matter the situation. This video was by a wonderful organization that brings out the wonderful and the positive in each and every special needs child.
Beit Issie Shapiro is the pioneering leader and innovator in the field of disabilities providing services and sharing models that improve the lives of people with disabilities globally; impacting 500,000+ people annually. Our mission is to create a more inclusive society across the globe by advancing the rights and opportunities for people with disabilities.
In today’s day and age, we know more about what it takes to make people happy who are suffering due to various disabilities. It is easier and more photogenic to focus on young children who clearly have developmental disabilities. These children most certainly do need much help from wonderful organizations such as Beit Issie Shapiro. But, there are people in need who will never feature in a video – such as the elderly home-bound population. They are often the forgotten side of the world. Today, so many people neglect their aging parents when they become a burden. But they also have a beautiful light that shines in them that simply needs to be “turned on.”
Any living person has a soul that needs nurturing. Some people need more people to turn on their souls and tend to their physical and emotional needs. But, the basic idea of this inspiring song is right on – we are all unique lights that are expressed in our souls. Our job is to awaken and nurture the soul in each and everyone in our lives.
