You’ve just about got time to learn it.

Make sure the backing group is up for it.

    I am not Jewish but this has lifted my spirits in what are generally dispiriting times. If I might be so bold.

    it’s sort of disarming, the guy has a voice, nice timbre but I HATE microphones, nobody can sing anymore without it or project their voices…he’s musical though but a long way from the great ones of yesteryear….and these giants won’t come again. Chazzanuth is as dead as great tenor singing : a world gone with the wind. But I give the guy credit that he didn’t resort to copy and pasting awful popmusic and give a Yiddish lay-over, I hate that even more than microphones
