18. Kol Bayar

It is said the both the text and the moving melody were composed by the renowned tzadik, Reb Aryeh Leib, better known as the Shpoler Zeideh (having lived in the town of Shpole in the Ukraine). He was one of the early followers of the Bal Shem Tov, the Founder of Chassidism, and was widely known for his great love and devotion to his fellow Jews. This nigun is a dialogue between the Almighty Father and His children, the People of Israel. The Father looks for His children in galuth (the Diaspora) and implores them to return home to the Holy Land, "Dear children, please return home, I feel forlorn without you."
