A space to share stuff I like mostly about the Middle East, human rights and religion.
This seems to come up A LOT when talking about Syria.
I’m looking at you, As’ad Abu Khalil.
Ki Nikham by Ari Goldwag. This is an a capella song, which is the only music religious Jews can listen to during days of mourning in the Jewish calender as instruments are forbidden during those times.
Hebrew: (Isaiah 51:3)
כִּי נִחַם ה’ צִיּוֹן נִחַם כָּל חָרְבֹתֶיה
וַיָּשֶׂם מִדְבָּרָהּ כְּעֵדֶן וְעַרְבָתָהּ כְּגַן ה’
שָׂשׂוֹן וְשִׂמְחָה יִמָּצֵא בָהּ תּוֹדָה וְקוֹל זִמְרָה
For the Lord will comfort Zion,
He will comfort all her waste places;
He will make her wilderness like Eden,
And her desert like the garden of the Lord;
Joy and gladness will be found in it,
Thanksgiving and the voice of melody.
