I have become a member of Chabad ACT in Canberra and am trying hard to affiliate with chassidic thought under the exceptional influence of a great Rabbi, Rabbi Shmueli Feldman. I heard him singing a nigin last Shabbat and researched on thet Net to find Tzama Lecha Nafshi. I played the song 20 times in a bid to join the great congregation. What an experience. What a joy. Tears to my eyes. I am 73. Thank you Rebbe thank you.

No Words
I have no words to explain my feelings when I hear this. If I was able to be there I wouldn't of been able to control my joy! The Rebbe, in righteous memory, has left us with many stories and things of this in which I am very thankful!

simply beautiful
I can't begin to describe what I feel inside everytime I hear this. 1st heard it on Matisyahu's concert CD. I found myself hitting the repeat button, not even wanting to listen to the rest of the songs; this is peculiar because I dont speak Hebrew so I had know idea what my soul was even responding to.

It became so consuming I googled the words I could make out and it brought me here. The first time just had an audio recording; but let me tell you, when I heard it (I was at work too) I burst into tears, it was so overwhelming to hear this big crowd in unity singing this scripture. To read it in English, it confirmed why this resonated so strongly within.

I came back this morning to play it for my husband, and I find the video. Again I'm in tears of joy to see such a huge assembly of men, united in faith. You just don't see that anymore. I may not be directly Jewish, but my soul is, if that's even possible? God bless you beautiful people!

I'm not even chassidisch, but this is such a moving clip. It almost brings me to tears, not only watching the rebbe as he seems like an incredible man, but watching the hasidim all in rythm singing "my soul thirsts!"...indeed it does.

This was amazing and in away makes me jealous that I never had the honour or priviledge of having the chance to vebrein with the Rebbe

The Rebbe's Holy Neshama & Great Leadership
This little video clip tells so much in such a limited amount of mere seconds: It shows how our Rebbe brought together the soul force of our new Jewish leaders. It illustrates the comraderie of the men who were united into a strong force by this amazing Rebbe, who allowed them to experience their essential soul force together. What an amazing spiritual leader with a great gift for unification!

My name is Avi I am a recent convert this song brought tears to my eyes and a thirst in my soul. My mind did not understand one much of what was said but my soul understood completely. Thank you and praise and blessings to HaShem.

My soul thirsts.
Makes you feel proud to be Jewish, a very moving song,and gives you some idea of the vast amount of Jewish communities, in eastern europe, that have long disapeard, and what might have been. Shalom.

My Soul Thirsts
This is a wonderful and most moving clip, which I must have played some ten times since I located it yesterday. Many thanks for making it available.
