Ein Prat Fountainheads in New Passover Video - "Breakin' Free"


As Passover approaches, we've been hoping that the Fountainheads of Ein Prat would release a new music video to join their highly acclaimed outdoor song and dance extravaganza that went viral a year ago and raised the bar for high quality videos to mark the Jewish holidays.

Yesterday their second Passover video, Breakin' Free, made its debut on YouTube and we're happy to share it with you today.

The Fountainheads are a group of young Israeli singers, dancers, and artists, all graduates and students of the Ein Prat Academy for Leadership, who have joined forces to create new Jewish artistic content for today's Jewish world.

All members of the group have spent time living and studying at the Ein Prat Academy, working to create new expressions of Israeli-Jewish identity and building a strong and diverse community that celebrates Jewish life. Through their videos and live performances, the Fountainheads' work is enjoyed by millions of people all over the world. 

If you missed their first Passover video, Dayenu/Coming Home, you'll find it just below this year's version. 

Looking for the lyrics? They're just below the two videos. Enjoy!

Lyrics:

Workin' through another day
I can't go on any more
There's gotta be a better way
To get home...

Lift my eyes up to the sky
Hope is on the way
Dreamin' one day I may try
To go... Breakin' Free

One more day
One more night
Till we'll all be free again
One more brick
One more stone
We'll all be
Breakin' Free

There ain't no time
We all wanna come on home again
We've been waitin' for
So long.

I think it's happening tonight
I can feel it in the air
Passin' over me in the fight
Goin' on...

Now this my chance to make things right
Start way all over again
Eatin' matzah in mid-flight
We're all... Breakin' free

One more day
One more night
Till we all be free again
One more step
One more smile
We'll all be
Breakin' Free

There aint' no time
We gotta go on home tonight
We've been waitin' for...

Echad mi yodeah (Who knows one?)
Echad ani yodeah (I know one...)

Ooooo...Breakin' Free!

One more day
One more night
Then we'll all be free again
One more dip
One more crunch
Then we'll all be
Breakin' Free

This is the time
Everybody's comin' home again
We've been waiting for so long

This is the time
Everybody's come on home again
We've been waitin' for so long!
