Another song by reader request . . .
V’hareinu, composed by Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz
I had never heard this song when a PJM (playJewishMusic.com) reader requested it. We listened to it on repeat for hours on end, until even my two and a half year old was singing it! 🙂
Over the past few years, Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz has become famous for his soul stirring compositions. This song was composed in honor of the 200th Anniversary of the Mir Yeshiva and presented at the Mir Yeshiva Dinner. With over 100,000 YouTube views, it has quickly become a hit and is being sung at kumzitses worldwide.
The words to the song come from Mussaf of the Shalosh Regalim (Three Festivals). We beseech Hashem to rebuild the Beis Hamikdash as it once was, to return the Kohanim to their service, the Levi’im to their songs, and the entire Jewish people to their home.
You can get the sheet music for this song in three keys:
- C#m (same as the V’hareinu original recording)
- Am (always the easiest!) and
- Em (why not?)
