it seems like the idea of yosef and yaacov in this video is to strengthen and bring to the front that incredible connection that exists between every father and child, that NEVER GIVE UP feeling, which we learn so well from today the ninth of av, where we know of the greatest destruction for our people but nevertheless we know that Mashiach and hope are at the door and will reveal themselves any moment. eternity is what i felt when i watched the video, thank you for all those involved in making it, your dedication and love is clear, may… Read more »

dafka Yosef?

True, Leiby could have been the Yosef of the generation but he also could have been the Yitzhak, Moshe, Akiva, or someone else of the generation or none of those. To say that he was one or the other is to claim to understand the mind of G-d. Which we don’t.

yes

children who are lost
we need to treat each one as our own
that is what i am taking from this
thank you Rabbi Amar
thank you…

yashar coach
may we never forger leibby zl and the unity in am isroel that he brought. achdus isroel will bring leibby zl back

Yisroels point was that lei by was like Yosef because he was taken away at such a young age
July 28, 2011 4:46 pm

I think lei by was like Yosef because even at 8 or9 he was a tzadik

July 28, 2011 12:05 pm

The lyrics are so real, they bring out the tragic story from 2 diff perspectives.. the father and Leiby OBM really really well done!

This song is so soft, slow, etc. You get the picture.
Very moving, I almost started crying when the song was over.
The whole time during the video, I was just too ‘hypnotized’ to think about anything but this amazing, moving song that Yisroel Amar made.

no words
July 28, 2011 1:45 am

this is amazing! listening, I felt it was a message from shomayim.
let us use our emotions to daven also for the safe return of Yosef ben Yaffa (American surfer Daniel Bobis who is missing in the waters of Indonesia),

Amazing with so much emotion !

Wow. what lyrics and waht beautiful production.

WOW!
July 26, 2011 12:12 pm

Blown away… 110 Points! Not needlessly emotional just very meaningful Sadly there is another aspect where Leiby’s story matches Yosefs… It was Yosef’s brothers who took him away… It’s a sad fact that we have to face… If you see something – Say something! No more sweeping things under the rug. I didn’t mean to take away from this beautiful song… If it hasn’t yet been sent to the family it should be. Yisroel Amar, Esty Shemtov, Dina Amar, Rabbi Chay Amar, Ron BenHaim, Mendel Amar – Kol Hakavod! May G-d finally make good on his promise and bring Moshiach… Read more »
