National Day of Kanei Lishimcha

By overwhelming request, today is National Day of Kanei Lishimcha.

I.M. Helfgot (composed by Yossi Green and recorded on his "8th Note" album). As I remember, when 8th Note was released, the sense was that Fried was wrongly-denied this magnificent song and weirdly assigned "Heseich Hadaas" (which could as well have been sung by Shloime Dachs). It was also the official induction of Chazzan Helfgot as a mainstream singer, and not only as a novelty act at HASC.


Avraham Fried. See original post and comments here.
