Cantor Schwartz Sings R'tze Vimnuhoseinu (“Embrace Our Rest”)
Song of the Week • 4m 59s
This prayer from the Shabbat Amidah expresses our souls’ desire for both kinds of peace described by Rabbi Nahman of Bratzlav: the kind within oneself, which arises from a sense of awe and humility, and the universal kind that comes from prayer. Traditional cantorial singing at its core is a soulful style, and we encourage you to close your eyes and imagine the peace going into your soul. Wishing you a peaceful Shabbat.
