Shoshanas Yaakov by the Moshe Skier Band

Hi folks. Time for my Friday pre-Shabbat liturgical special.

On my way home from the Purim megillah reading with my little wigglers, I got inspired to find and share the hymn Shoshanas Yaakov. A little YouTubing later and here we are...the irrepressible Moshe Skier Band performing a rocking version.

Shoshanas (or Shoshanat) Yaakov (The Rose of Jacob) is a standard hymn used at the close of the reading. You can find a more traditional recording, the words in English and Hebrew and some commentary at the Chabbad website.
