After nearly two years of filming and production in studios in Hollywood and New York, with an investment of resources never before seen in Jewish music, Yaakov Shwekey presents a new music video for the title track from his most recent album "We Are A Miracle", produced by Mendy Pellin.

The star of the video is a boy who survived the Auschwitz death camp, made Aliyah to Israel and fought in the Yom Kippur war. In the heat of battle, as he was surrounded by enemy troops, he made the decision to stand on his tank, put on Tefilin, and say the Sh'ma. Decades later this same hero gives his tefilin to his grandson as a Bar Mitzvah present, so that he will be able to continue the Jewish tradition without fear, for after all, we are a miracle.

Yaakov Shwekey tells of the decision to release the video today:

"Yesterday, Tisha B'av, I was sitting on the floor reading about the horrors and suffering of our nation. It's been so many years crying so many tears.....

"Instead of waiting for our planned live-show release, I decided, there's no better time to release my 'WE ARE A MIRACLE' music video than today!

"Let this film be a tool to help teach and remind our generation what we've been through. But, more importantly, focus on how lucky and thankful we should be that we are a part the greatest nation in the world! A world that still has a lot of unconditional hatred towards Israel and the Jewish people.

"And just like we persevered through the worst atrocities, we will continue to flourish and be proud of our heritage!

"Let's sing this song as one and see and feel that each one of us is a great MIRACLE..."
