The Alter Rebbe’s Niggun (Remastered)

I listened back to my original recording, and decided it needed a revamp. Recorded, B”H By Aharon HaChassid on HaYom Revi’i, the 18th of Elul, 5772. Enjoy, Comment, and Subscribe.

If anyone wants to donate, which will help me buy more instruments for the instrumentation (eventually, I want to put in violin, some brass, percussion) as well as higher quality recording equipment, please do so either at My Blog: However, this does not affect my policy regarding audio, the recordings are free. Just email me at, and I will send you the audio. It’s much easier than trying to rip the audio off of the videos, higher quality, and more legal. Good Shabbos!

Russian-Jewish songs in Israel (Israel Russia Russian Jews Русские евреи Израиль)

The Israeli film Green Chariot, explores life in Israel and Tel Aviv and identity as a Russian Jew and the Russian Jewish community of Israel. This song was originally written in Yiddish by Ovsey Driesse (овсей дриз), and set to music in Russian by Alexander Sukhanov. Although the song has hasidic origins, referring to the Merkava (flying chariot) of Hasidic belief, after Sukhanov’s adoption it became a favourite song of all the Russian children in Sovi

Rabbi Arthur Waskow’s introduction by Rabbi David Saperstein, Nov 3, 2013

This video comes from “This is What 80 Looks Like!” — the event which honored Rabbi Arthur Waskow and Gloria Steinem on Nov 3, 2013, as they approached their 80th birthdays. Reb Arthur, founder and director of The Shalom Center, was introduced by Rabbi David Saperstein, director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, who was recently named the most influential rabbi in America.

This video has the full Introduction by Rabbi Saperstein. A front-page article about the event in the Philadelphia Jewish Exponent reported some of its highlights:

“With the 1969 publication of Waskow’s Freedom Seder, the entire course of contemporary Jewish liturgical writing was altered. Waskow’s take on the Seder completely reimagined a traditional text and raised urgent moral issues by focusing on the struggles of African-Americans.
“He has had a profound impact on the Reform, Conservative and Reconstructionist movements and it is time — and then some — that he be acknowledged.”

Click on “Read More” just below, to view the video:
The several “80” events were sponsored by The Shalom Center ( to celebrate elder-activism and “two lifetimes speaking truth to power.” During the afternoon, Ms. Steinem and Reb Arthur met with 18 “Youngers” for a two-hour intergenerational conversation on activism. After a Celebration Dinner, nearly 500 supporters packed the Mishkan Shalom synagogue, Philadelphia, PA with standing-room-only, to hear Letty Cottin Pogrebin, co-founder of Ms. magazine and noted author on Jewish feminism, introduce Ms. Steinem; Rabbi Saperstein introduce Reb Arthur; and Dr. Dan Gottlieb, host of NPR/ WHYY radio show “Voices in the Family,” interview the two 80-year-old activists.

Abel Meeropol

From Wikipedia

Abel Meeropol (February 10, 1903 – October 30, 1986) was an American writer, teacher[1] and song-writer, whose works were published under his pseudonym Lewis Allan. His best-known song is “Strange Fruit” (1937), especially as recorded by Billie Holiday.

He and his wife Anne cared for and adopted Michael and Robert, the two young sons of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were orphaned after their parents were executed for treason. The boys took the Meeropol surname to gain some privacy.[2]

Meeropol wrote the anti-lynching poem “Strange Fruit” (1937), which was first published in the Marxist publication, The New Masses.He later set it to music. The song’s best-known recordings and performances were by Billie Holiday and Josh White.[3] Billie Holiday claimed in Lady Sings the Blues, that she co-wrote the music to the song with Meeropol and Sonny White, but Meeropol was the sole writer of both the lyrics and melody.Read More Button--orange

Jewish Life in Argentina Reflected in Yiddish Tango

Jewish people from across Europe and Russia have been immigrating to Argentina for hundreds of years. They brought with them dance music that was eventually mixed with Argentine tango. The result is Yiddish tango — a fusion of melodies and cultural experiences that is still evolving today. Elizabeth Lee reports from the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, where one band is bringing Yiddish tango to an American audience.

Hava Nagila

From Wikipedia

Hava Nagila” (הבה נגילה Havah Nagilah, “Let us rejoice”) is an Israeli folk song. It is perhaps the first modern Israeli folk song in the Hebrew language that has become a staple of band performers at Jewish weddings and Bar/Bat Mitzvahs. It was composed in 1920s Palestine at a time when Hebrew was first being revived as a spoken language for the first time in 2,000 years (in other words, since 70 CE, the destruction of the Second Temple). For the first time, Palestinian Jews were being encouraged to speak Hebrew as a common language, instead of Yiddish, Arabic, Ladino, or other regional Jewish languages
