More Betzalel Edwards

About a month ago I posted a video by Chassidic musician and scholar Betzalel Edwards. In the weeks since he's posted a few more videos. This recording of Yedid Nefish came out yesterday, and I thought it was just the thing to help us all get ready for the Shabbat.

Yedid Nefesh - Rav Ashlag, Zts"l

According to Reb Edwards video notes the music being performed is...

"A niggun (Jewish melody) composed by one of the great Kabbalists of the 20th century, Rabbi Yehuda Leib Ashlag, ZTS"L, set to a piyut (liturgical poem) written by one of the Tsfat Kabbalists 400 years ago."

Shabbat shalom, everyone.
