This song of pain, hope, and comfort, composed for when Jews find themselves in a state of terror and pain and captivity, accompanied by the Holocaust Survivor Band. The band leader a survivor of multiple concentration camps rallies his musicians, many second generation survivors to sing Acheinu Kol Beis Yisrael. May god bring them from distress to comfort, from darkness to light, from slavery to redemption.

Let “never again” be never again!

Performed with the Surfside Tower victims and heroes at the National Jewish Retreat by JLI. See more here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCESz8P8IVAdOV-vcfavS1qA

אַחֵינוּ כָּל בֵּית יִשְׂרָאֵל
הַנְּתוּנִים בַּצָּרָה וּבַשִּׁבְיָה
.הָעוֹמְדִים בֵּין בַּיָּם וּבֵין בַּיַּבָּשָׁה
הַמָּקוֹם יְרַחֵם עֲלֵיהֶם
וְיוֹצִיאֵם מִצָּרָה לִרְוָחָה
וּמֵאֲפֵלָה לְאוֹרָה וּמִשִּׁעְבּוּד לִגְאֻלָּה
הַשְׁתָּא בַּעֲגָלָא וּבִזְמַן קָרִיב
.וְאִמְרוּ אָמֵן

Our brothers, the whole house of Israel,
who are in distress and captivity,
who wander over sea and over land
May God have mercy on them,
and bring them from distress to comfort,
from darkness to light,
from slavery to redemption,
now, swiftly, and soon. And let us say: Amen.
