Singer Levy Falkowitz shares his new hit song, Toiv Lee, in a heartfelt visual celebration of the moments and memories surrounding a precious Sefer Torah.
He collaborated with composer Hershey Rotenberg, producer Avrom Mordchi Schwartz and arranger Yoeli Dikman, and the Yedidim choir.
Toiv Lee is a song filled with both joy and gratitude, a recognition of how much of one’s life in intertwined with Toiras Picho, the Torah of Hashem, he said.
Filmed by Shlomo Chaim Rivkin, the music video follows the journey not only of the Sefer Torah but also of the lives it touches along the way. Following the guidance of rabbis, no kosher Sifrei Torah were used in the filming of the music video.
From a sofer sitting alone in a room writing a Sefer Torah’s first words, to a Bar Mitzva bochur standing for his first aliya together with his father, and everything in between.
For those who remember fondly the scent of an old gemara in a quiet shul between Mincha or Maariv, for those who recall with love davenning on a wooden bench that has been repainted many times over, for those who rejoice when they see a new Sefer Torah being walked to its shul for the first time, this is the song and video they’ve been waiting for.
