A POWERFUL SONG

    The words, singing, feeling, music and pictures tell a true story.

    Click here: YouTube - "Where can I go?" Yiddish song Steve Lawrence

    Most of it is in English, all immigrants will understand this feeling. Those born here will get an understanding of what America means to the world. It's a beautiful song.

      faybe. . I dont speak it really either ...but I think Harvey said something like  . .
      Happy Passover pretty girl .. its Yiddish.  .and it is quite endearing when someone says it. . it is also something that once you hear it  . .you never forget it. . the words take on a whole new meaning. .and usually when said  . .someone lovingly pinches your cheek!

        Thanks! I knew it had something to do with Passover. I think we should all attend at least one Passover feast, regardless of our background!

        I had the honor of attending one at a nearby church, the church was sharing the building with a Jewish sect that was in the process of building a temple, and so they did a Passover Feast for the whole congregation of both.

        The Rabbi stood and explained to us all of the symbolism of the feast. I cried. It was the most beautiful service I have ever attended in my life, as the Rabbi and Pastor were friends. They shared so much with all of us.
