Overnight music video

Legend tells that after the Holocaust, R. Yosef Kahaneman zt'l , the Ponevezhe Rov began looking for Jewish children who had survived the war. It was known that some of the children had ended up in churches and were being raised as Christians. The Rov encountered one church that denied the existence and presence of Jewish children within their midst... He was granted permission to enter the children's quarters to inspect for himself -- when he entered he began calling out "Shema Yisroel" and instinctively many of the children raised their hands to cover their eyes and started calling out "mama! mama!"

Rav Kahaneman - who has a street named after him in just about every major city in Israel - saved hundreds of Jewish children in this manner.

The full Shema prayer is said twice daily in synagogue, and an abridged version is said soon after awakening in the morning and before going to sleep at night - a total of four times a day.

This song is by Yaakov Shwekey.

Let's go to the videotape.


Sorry, I just discovered I posted the same video back in August. You knew that would happen eventually, didn't you?
