Nice!

Very nice! However, would NIT be more correct than nisht? As in “Es Daven’t zich nit”.

yes it was a trying period the Rebbe was mvarer that period but we live in different times with different trial and tribulations perhaps its time for the melchonic gan yisroel style themes to focus on now

Chani Rosenblum Baron and I wrote the words to this song for colorwar at Camp Gan Yisroel in Kalkaska Michigan around 1978, when we were mere infants. We got stuck on the last lines of the chorus, and had the brainstorm to put in the original Yiddish, figuring the judges would love it. They did! We won. And by the way, it’s “hopeless.” Dina (Devorah Leah) Rosenfeld

I heard its about Itche Mishulovin from Merkaz Stam in Ch. Is that true?? Can anyone verify this?

Yeah, I agree with 19 and 33 - why don't we share who this is?

So well done!! Brought me to tears, b/c of the original story and how beautifully sung by these young yeshiva boys!!! Much nachas from them

Aside from the effect this video will surely have on people watching it, what stands out most to me is getting those boys involved in these type of inyonim. It’s a challenge these days for that age range especially to have a chayus and geshmak in Yiddishkeit and chassidus. Getting them excited by involving them in the production of a video with all the technology, etc. surely helps with this challenge. Moishy Goldstein’s recognition of this lfi anias dati makes him an incredible mechanich. Looking forward to more great things in the future from him and his talmidim!

Deja vu.....
Guest
Deja vu.....

I do not know if correct – but could it be that one of the boys singing is the great grandson of Rabbi J.J. Hecht A”H?
His expression and voice remind me so much of Rabbi Hecht’s children and grandchildren in the 1960’s – 70’s in Camp Emunah….

Anyone with real facts can verify this?
Is it Itche Mishulovin or Michoel Mishulovin from Nachlas Har Chabad?
This has a beautiful message and would love to know who its about when sharing this story!!
