Rabbi Angela Buchdahl, Senior Rabbit at Central Synagogue in New York writes:
A profoundly moving experience to welcome Neshama Carlebach back to our bima at Central. To both celebrate her new extraordinary album “Believe” and to make a tikkun and healing after our year moratorium on Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach’s music. Video below includes my words to the community, our “Shiru Ladonai” together, and Neshama’s exquisite new prayer “Don’t Let Me Go.”
Please watch and I encourage you to support Neshama Carlebach’s beautiful album of original music.
