UNITED BY A ZEMER [SHABBOS SONG]



I know it's been a long time, but I'm back! Here's an amazing video which I just found out about today, which shows how Jewish unity can be engendered and enhanced with Shabbos Zemiros = Zemirot Shabbat [Sabbath songs sung at one's table on the Sabbath].

Entitled "Sfashkanaz" it could just have well been called "AshkeSfard", but you will definitely get the idea. It was produced by the wonderful Oorah organization, a non-profit entity whose self-description is:

Oorah, which means "Awaken," was founded in 1980 with the goal of awakening Jewish children and their families to their heritage.We seek out families who are interested in enriching their spiritual lives, and provide them with the right resources to succeed. We enable children to enroll in Jewish day schools or yeshivos, where they receive a full religious and secular education straight through high school. While the children learn and grow, we bring adult education opportunities to the parents, as well as all the ritual objects and support they need to live a full Jewish life.
