Musical Notes

A line from the weekday prayer Ezrat Avoteinu and the Shabbat prayer Nishmat. The melody, in two parts, celebrates the Exodus from Egypt and is sung with great joy and enthusiasm, particularly during the Passover holidays. It also voices hope for the future liberation. Originally the melody was a favorite of the famous Chassid Rabbi Hillel Paritcher, a Chassid of the Tzemach Tzedek, the third Chabad Rebbe. Brought to the fifth Lubavitcher Rebbe for Pesach 5660 (1900) by the Chassidim of Nikolayev, Ukraine, the melody is currently a great favorite.

Taught in the time of the
Rebbe Rashab, Rabbi Sholom Dov Ber

Esther Mae: African Jewish music You might like a CD called "Abudaya" of very beautiful music from a community of African Jews. Very different from chassidishe music! Reply

which CD? There's a link right under the song that says "Click here to order the CD," but it goes to a page with many different CDs to choose from. I've been searching through all the relevant website pages, but I don't see any way to tell which CD this song is on, or what songs are on any of the CDs. Can anyone help with that? Thanks! Reply

Song Very interesting comment Esther Mae! The singers are not at all African. In fact, they are chassidim who are mainly Russian and Ukrainian immigrants. Enjoy! Reply

Song-Mimitzraim Gealtonu That song IS BEAUTIFUL! It sounds like it is being sung by African Jews. I "LOVE" African music that's traditional & not modern. If I'm correct about Africans singing it could you please tell me which country, what tribe, what language & anything else about the way they practise their Jewish beliefs?

Chassidic Melodies The music is awe inspiring. I can feel the energy, joy and soulful messages.....Mimitzraim Gealtonu, will lead me out of Mitzraim, I wake up to the melody and rest to sleep with its mesage My heart sings of this message Reply
