Chassidic singer Simche Friedman presents his tenth single: a sweeping and moving musical work, with a Hassidic flavor and “a taste of yesteryear”, built on the first words of Rashi on the Torah.

The song – composed by Friedman and expertly arranged by Yoeli Dickman, begins in cantorial style with Reb Yitzchak’s question, continues with the Gentile accusation “You have robbed us!”, and ends with a resounding rendering of the indisputable answer: “The Earth belongs to G-d, who took the Land from them and gave it to us”!

The First Rashi – another unique musical gem from Simche Friedman. Take a deep breath and embark on an extended (6 minute) extraordinary musical journey!
