"Ilan / Kad Yasvun / Friday Night Niggun" - MBD

I found myself humming "Kad Yasvun" this morning and considered making it a National Day of Kad Yasvun. But there's only one other that I can think of, so instead, we'll use this opportunity to post a beautiful track from a relatively old recording that may have been conceived in the same brain section as the recent MBD & Shira. From "Once Upon A Niggun". track 6: "Yeshivish"

Yiddish Jems (Hebrew) - Yackov

IIRC Mendy Kaplan from Safed wrote the Hebrew lyrics. Listening to this, I decided that he's a true genius! He translated (almost) every word accurately, i.e. didn't add or remove words to re-write the story, and managed to keep them as a rhyme.


Im Eshkachech - Ben Asouf

This is what this song would sound like if Shwekey would just finally accept who he is!

Al Kein Tzion - MBD and Shira - Kissufim

This track was chosen using the method of Borer: Extracting the enjoyable from the undesirable. Please do not play on Shabbos or Yom Tov.

See Our New Look.
Ahh? Eh? Huh? Eek?

Still under construction. Thank you Peretz of Big Chair Design for the beautiful laying out, with particular thanks for the new mural/masthead!

Comments welcome!

Napoleon's March - Chabad Centennial Concert

The other part of the theme song of JEM's Living Torah series... It's pretty solid at full length with full sound.

I remember opining then--and my opinion hasn't changed--that Yisroel Lamm has one grab-bag of arrangements into which he dips at random. He then spreads a generous helping of whatever comes up over a few Miami Experiences, some HASCs and the occasional Chabad Centennial Concert.

Nyet, Nyet from the same concert

Dos Yiddishe Lid

Today I loved the song from the 6:12 mark. I think this song somehow really embodies the concept that from Rosh HaShana through Simchas Torah is really one long Yom Tov, with the Avoda differing for each Yom Tov.

P.S. Please excuse any typos, I typed only with my left hand :)

The Gvir - R' Peretz Mockin ז"ל


Niggun Rikkud Chabad - MBD

During the Presidential race between John Kerry and President Bush in 2004, the NYTIMES ran an editorial and pointed out the faults of the Kerry–Edwards logo. Their chief complaint was, that unlike the Bush-Cheny logo, when looking at the Kerry-Edwards logo all you saw was Edwards.

Sorry to say, the visual of this CD cover speaks volumes.
