Hupp Cossack!

This triumphant tune is associated with the a Chassidic Rebbe’s self-sacrifice in saving the life of a fellow Jew. The story: It once happened that a Jew who had rented an inn from the local landlord had fallen behind in his payments and was jailed. The landlord announced that on a particular day this Jew was to be dressed in a bear costume and to compete in a dance contest. The Shpoler Zeide put his life on the line and secretly took the place of this unfortunate Jew. This is the song to which they danced.
