Because of My Friends


SKU: SS06 Category: Tag:


From Psalm 122:8-9. Melody by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach. Listen to the beautiful vocal harmony by Rabbi Jackie Brodsky. Drumming by Tom Freeman. The psalm literally begins with the words “For the sake of my brothers friends…,” but Reb Shlomo chose to translate it as “Because of my brothers and friends.” This completely changes the focus of the psalm. It’s not just that I can give peace to others, but it’s because of my friends that I can have peace in the first place.
