“For Your salvation I yearn, Hashem!”
Shlomo Katz recently released a hauntingly beautiful rendition of this pasuk:
From Shlomo Katz’s new “Likrat Shabbat” album
שבת שלום וחודש טוב!
Shabbat shalom, and may the coming week and month be filled with besurot tovot, yeshu’ot v’nechamot (good tidings, salvation, and consolation) for Am Yisrael!
