Holocaust Remembrance Day and So Beautiful! Jay Black & the Americans and magic in times square

You Can Do More Than You Think

Try to think of instances when you originally thought you would be unable to do something, but in fact were able to do it. This can teach you that your feeling that something is impossible, does not necessarily mean it is truly not possible.

Love Yehuda

In honor of Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day, today...very powerful video about the generations lost:

"Yes, that's my father."

YouTube - Videos from this email

Now for a little humor

right in the streets in the heart of Times Square.

You'll love this!!!!

After the humor a little perspective

This is beautiful.
A popular singer and group in the 60?s was Jay and The Americans. Jay Black (real name David Blatt) was from an Orthodox Jewish background. His most famous song was Cara Mia. The group had many top hits.. His voice had an operatic/cantorial quality.
He recorded a famous Yiddish song called "Where is the Village?" (Vi iz dus geseleh?) in 1966.
Jay adapted it into a version to demonstrate his feelings about the Holocaust. After a long struggle with the record company, he convinced them to let him record it. While recording it he worked with Artie Butler to help him with the arrangement. He added Chagall's paintings to provide sentimental visions of the Jewish villages in vivid colors.
Hope you enjoy this! The Chagall pictures are spectacular.
