With the blessing of the Kohanim at the כותל המערבי/Western wall today, it felt like it was an appropriate time to release this. “Shalom” – “LIVE at Zion Gate”- a prayer-song, inspired by the chabad melody for the priestly blessing /ברכת כוהנים.

I’m blown away by how many of you got involved in this social-media sourced choir that turned into more than 100 voices singing along with me. Thank you all so much for joining me on this journey.

May we see real peace. Within and beyond.
May the hostage be returned TODAY.
