The Yud Beis Tammuz Niggun

The Yud Beis Tammuz Niggun

 Email

This niggun was composed by R’ Aharon Charitonov, The Shochat of Nikolayev, to mark the release of the sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe from prison in 1927. It is known that he composed this niggun even before the Rebbe was freed, so firmly did he believe that the Rebbe would soon be released. The joy expressed here does not burst forth freely from the heart, but is rather borne by deep-felt trust in the ultimate good of divine providence, even in the face of unimaginable adversity. Here it is sung at a Farbrengen of the seventh Rebbe commemorating his predecessor’s release.
