Story

The children of my little school Chedertzeit were the inspiration for this song. Ever will be my students close to my heart...you know who you are, know you are miracles. Yiddish was my first language, and as Robert Louis Stevenson strove to preserve Lalan Scots so my first album Vig Lider fun Gan Eydn and all songs I've penned in the Mame Loshen so do I strive to keep Yiddish upon the human tongue influencing with its broad and subtle strokes our independent and collective realities.

Story

This text is the first prayer traditionally taught; music composed & chanted by Rabbi Leonard.

"As with the majority of my liturgical pieces - the text is classic-traditional whilst the tunes, ever present in my makom, awaken in prayer."

Lyrics

Thank YOU my SOURCE for returning my soul into my body in perfect faith.
