We had a family over at our house this past Friday night. They have a married son who stopped by. The family is very musically inclined, and those of you who know me know that this means very much to me. I had my own me’ein olam haba able to sing rare niggunim with them, and hear rare niggunim I hadn’t heard of.
Anyway, there is a Bobov version of Y-ah Ribon that has mesmerized me for years. But I was never able to commit it to memory. Not only did the son know it, he told me he has a CD with that very tune, and other Chassidish favorites on it as well. I just started listening. I am so happy right now. Maybe tonight I have a neshama yeseira since it’s shtei p’amim chai la’omer!
