Musical Notes


This melody can be traced originally to the Polish-Ukraine Chassidim. The well-known Lubavitcher Chassid, Reb Asher of Nikolayev, learned it from musicians playing at a Chassidic wedding in Kiev. Later the prominent Chassidic singer, Reb Aaron Charitonov of Nikolayev, added and adapted it to the Chabad style. As presently sung, it is in four sections.

When the 5th Chabad Rebbe, Rabbi Sholom Ber, the Rebbe Rashab, heard this melody for the first time about eighty years ago, he observed that this melody reflects the humility and subordination of the Chassid and his reliance on the Rebbe.
