the original song was for a israel sailor that died when a israel submarine name DAKAR was lost in the ocean and never found

ma avarech

this is definitely an israeli tune that i recall from about the late 60’s /70’s.It is on an album.Nevertheless, this is a haunting tribute to a beautiful young woman that I never knew but am deeply inspired by.And Gd console her husband and family who must suffer so by this loss.It is amazing that for those of us who know none of these people, we still feel immense pain. I can never forget this woman.

As always when Avremel is involved everything is very professional. All of the credits are given at the end of the video, including for the original song and for these special lyrics.

Nice song

Nice song

Not putting anyone down C”V but i think this song should be in memory of all the chabad children that passed away in the last year. The raskins being more famouse in Lubavitch get alot more support. we must also remmeber those that are not as famouse as the raskins. sometimes it is those small families that need more support. a child is a child the pain is the same no matter how famous the family is we must come together and support each one of these families that lost children. there are over 15 children ages 0-30 that passed… Read more »

The song was done by friends

The song was done by friends

This was first done specifically for Chana AH by her friend who wrote the lyrics and her cousin who was the original singer. It has nothing to do with how famous any family is – just that she happened to have musical friends. Avremel came along only afterward so that men could hear the song which Chana A”H’s friend composed to the Ma Avarech musical score. So if you want Avremel, who everyone agrees is a real mensch, and Choni who is the same, to produce a song of the type you want, find someone who can write it and… Read more »

You are missing the point, its not about this song. its a general rule the more famous you are and the more gezze your family and the bigger your last name the more support and help you get in the chabad community, i know a simple BT family who lost a 4 year old in crown heights had 20 people come to their levaya and was hardly able to get a minyan for shiva!! how many people show up at other levayas who are geze and so on. the pain is the same and we must show our support to… Read more »

This thread is about this song. Full stop.

It is not about social problems in the community. To use the song and what it represents for this is a cynical disgrace to Chana AH’s memory and an insult to her family.
