Sh’ma Koleinu — Hear Our VoiceAzi Schwartz
The sights and sounds coming to us from the Ukraine have been marked by fear and tragedy, by silence and the voices of the injured and displaced — sounds which the Jewish people know well. In the prayer “Sh’ma Koleinu”, we ask that these voices of humanity will not only be heard, but answered. We offer you a newly-commissioned Israeli composer’s setting of this prayer, hoping for an increase of compassion in the world.
Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom.
