ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This album is a collection of Shabbat songs from Eastern Europe sung at the Shabbat table of Nachum and Beila Finkelstein and in the home of Yitzchak and Ora Zohar, and renewed in a special collaboration between Yitzchak Zohar and his grandson Yoel Sykes. Eight of the melodies were gleaned out of the tens of zemirot sung at the Finkelstein Shabbat table, and three more were brought into the Zohar family from different sources.

The musical pieces have been fashioned out of a desire to be true to the original Finkelstein singing, while creating music that is intelligible and melodious to the ears of listeners, some hundred years later. We have thus preserved the traditional melodies, while giving the songs new life with inspired interpretations.

And last, a story. A Hasidic Rabbi was asked, "Aren't you Hasidim ashamed to take tunes from profane sources and use them for religious poems"? The Rabbi replied, "I see that you are not aware that all music has its source in God, Who rains His music down to this world. Some of it falls into the ears of a dance-hall composer, and he composes a waltz; some of it to the ears of a military music composer, and he composes a march; and yet another melody falls into the ears of a shepherd, who composes a plaintive tune. When a menagen passes by, and hears a waltz, a march, or a plaintive melody, and matches them to a religious poem worthy of them - he is reconnecting them to their source."

Yitzchak Zohar, Jerusalem
