11. Reb Michel Z'Lotchover's Niggun (Striving)

This melody was composed by the chossid Reb Michel Zlotchover. It was very dear to the Baal Shem Tov, the founder of Chassidism (1698-1760). The Rebbes of Chabad would often sing this melody during prayer service and on auspicious occasions. It is considered a heavenly niggun, and is often used as a vehicle for stirring deep repentance. According to tradition, the Baal Shem Tov referred to this melody as “Hisorerus Rachamim Rabim Niggun” (nigun that induces enormous mercy).
