CHONEINU, HASHEM, CHONEINU!

On his "Mikdash Melech" recording, released around 1964, Reb Shlomo Carlebach had a tune called "Choneinu." Taken from the words of the Tachanun [supplication] prayer [and Tehillim 123:3], we entreat Hashem - "Choneinu, Hashem, Choneinu, ki rav savanu vuz - Be gracious unto us, Hashem, be gracious, because we have been satiated with contempt."

Someone has made a fantastic video slide show of the traumatic scenes our People are undergoing in these past few days, here - with this song as the background music.

Hat tip: Sultan Knish - thanks!

when I was trying to put it together I went through a large number of songs looking for the right one, including dozens from rabbi carlebach but this one felt right
