Happy birthday Rav Moshe Weinberger

In celebration of the 60th birthday of Rabbi Moshe Weinberger,  a few of us got together to surprise him for a special birthday present. Together with my brother Eitan, Chaim Dovid and Yosef Karduner we went into the studio to record a song, based on words from R’ Avraham Yitzchak HaKohen Kook ZT”L, whose 82nd Yahrtzeit is tonight, the 3rd of Elul.

I had the privilege of composing the melody to this precious poem, a poem that was one of the first teachings which R’ Weinberger himself learned from the Torahs of R’ Kook.

We are honored and excited to be sharing this song with you, as we have begun to discover who we really are, during the month of Elul.

What will emerge from this year's discovery?

Within each and every one of us lies a special instrument, a violin, a guitar, a flute or a drum. Sometimes it takes a while until we learn how to play our own instrument, but from the moment one begins to swim into the sea of Teshuvah, a song begins to sprout forth from the depths of one's soul. It is this song which expresses our inner essence, and brings hope and inspiration to all who hear it.

Poet of tshuvah, Have you been born yet?
