When we arise in the morning, the first breaths we take are with the words “מודה אני – I Give Thanks to You Hashem ”, on our lips.
The first words we say before we pray Shachris are, “ואהבת לרעך כמוך” Love Your Friend as Yourself.
This song, harmonized by brothers Matt & Tzvi Levin, bring out the light energy of love and appreciation. They believe that in order to truly experience the beauty of the world and the journeys we take, we must be able to put HaShem first and say thanks.
“Our appreciation to Him must be equivalent to our ability love our friend as much as we love ourselves. Perhaps, through dancing with this song we will learn to love ourselves on a greater level and then able to give to the world all the beauty we hold within,” they said.
