Album Notes
These songs were inspired by my own journey of wrestling with the mysteries of life and death. I offer them to you to provide solace and healing on your own grief journey.

The concept for this recording emerged from a conversation I had in 2001 with Rabbi Zalman Schachter-Shalomi z”l after my father, of blessed memory, Mitchell Robinson z”l left this world. Reb Zalman talked about having a CD of Nichum Avelim music - songs to comfort the mourner. At that time I was not yet ready to produce a whole recording of this genre of music. After Reb Zalman died, I thought, why did I wait so long? He would have wanted to hear this, so I hope he's listening from the Great Beyond.

I once learned that in an African country when a child is born they bring forth a new song. Unfortunately over the years, not only birth, but death has also written songs for me - and the many different selections on this recording were written by my own encounters with the death of friends and loved ones.

Death is a teacher- taking us on winding detours that we never knew we would go. That is how I feel about this music….I never really wanted to be here. But now that I am here, I have to acknowledge the bittersweet edge of creativity, comfort and memory these songs offer me. In recording them I hope they bring you to a place of consolation as well.

I have to thank my life partner, Dr. Simcha Raphael, visionary of The Daat Institute, (http://www.daatinstitute.net) for encouraging and supporting me with this project. I also thank all my friends who lent their time, talent and voices to me over the years: Yofiyah Deikman, Jefferson Martin, Juliet I. Spitzer, Rabbi Margot Stein, Susan Leviton, Rabbi Jack Gabriel, Frank Kohn, Rabbi Yaffa Shira Sultan.

A special note of gratitude to Sal Centola of Angel Studio who picked me up and carried me through to completion. Sal was one of my angels who Recorded, Mixed and Mastered all songs, played the music on all numbers except Kaddish, May Angels Carry You, and Healer (www.AngelStudio.us) .

And of course, I am also grateful to my angels who continue to guide and help carry me through life☺

I know my father Mitchell z’l, Reb Zalman z’l, Bubby Rose z”l, Savina z”l, Zelda z’l - and maybe even Aryeh z’l - are listening on their side of the veil. May their memory be a blessing.

Comforting, Soothing, Enlivening...
Greeting death has been one of the greatest reveals of living more fully and vibrantly. This entire album has been a companion to my thoughts while in the process of writing my own funeral. Discovering your album has comforted me, soothed me and enlivened my life. Bless you Rabbi Geela Rayzel Raphael for supporting me through my processes. Rabbi Melinda Bracha Bernstein
