Musical Notes


This lively tune of three stanzas is sung by Chassidim during the holidays, particularly on the holiday of Simchat Torah. The melody is very old, but only the last two stanzas were known. The first has been restored by recourse to the tradition preserved by the elder disciples from Kfar Chabad, Israel.

The words adapted to this melody follow the tradition of the veteran Chabad community in the Holy Land. In spite of its antiquity the melody is sung with youthful fervor and enthusiasm.
