Lubavitch pianist Sarah Dukes, who recently released her debut album ‘Finding Forever’ is hoping to raise awareness – and increase the performance of good deeds – for a young man from her hometown who needs a refuah shelaima.
Inspired by the courageous struggle of her friend, 20-year-old Zachary (Zacharya Avraham Baruch Ben Chana Raiza), who has been diagnosed with Leukemia, Dukes has released a free single, ‘Dancing in the Dark,’ a piano solo played by world renowned pianist Yaron Gershovsky.
The song is very emotional for Dukes. “‘Dancing in the Dark’ represents pain and darkness that we experience in our lives, but how we are ‘believers, sons of believers’ and we must continue to ‘dance’ through the darkness,” she says.
“We know that G-d is with us, watching over us and taking care of us, and we must have faith that He will take us all out of this darkness very soon and give us revealed reasons to dance!”
Post a good deed that you will do in honor of Zachary’s speedy recovery. Afterwards you are entitled to download the song below. May we only hear good news!
I am going to try to improve my interpersonal relationships and reach out to people

This song is so soulful, just beautiful!
Praying for a speedy recovery and strength to Zachary and his family.
My Hachlata is to give more Tzedaka more often.
A friend of Sara

I’m trying to remember to make a call every week to an older woman who lives alone.

This is. In the merit of our son Zachariah. Avrohom Baruch ben Chanah Raizah. Please continue to do mitzvot in his merit.he has many challenges and with Hashem’s he will have a complete refuah shalamah. Withlove to Sarah for hertalent to be guidedfor mitzvot.
increase in the mitzvoh of tzedaka and it is a known fact that giving tzedakah in one’s merit will hasten the recovery of that person.and as it is written about tzedakah:
גדלוה צדקה שמקרבת את הגאולה.
and may we merit the ultimate geulah with the coming of moshiach speedily in our days!
say kapital chof
I will try and try harder not to Speak or Listen to Loshon Hara ( gossip)
I’m going to try to say the nasi everyday. Great song by the way!
Wow! what a beautiful way to get people to do mitzvos! It is a beautiful song and I love the explanation behind it!
My mitzvah is that I am going to try to concentrate on the words that I am saying when I daven shemonah esrei today, instead of rushing through it.
Sarah, you are an inspiration and I love all of your music. Your CD helps keep all of us calm 🙂 May G-d bless you that you should continue to inspire us with your beautiful, soulful compositions!
its a very pretty song
Sarah, You are undeniably an amazing shlucha. I think it’s wonderful how you use your unique talent to help light up the world and the lives of others.
IY’H may Zach have an immediate refuah sheleima and may all who need a refuah sheleima or any kind of yeshuah be comforted with the imminent ultimate redemption.
Smile no matter what
