A Song For Leiby's Yahrtzeit

Composer Sarah Dukes of Crown Heights released a new single in honor of Leiby Kletzky obm, on his first Yahrtzeit on Tammuz 11.

By COLlive Reporter

Composer Sarah Dukes has released a new single in honor of Leiby Kletzky obm, on his first Yahrtzeit, today, 11 Tammuz.

Little Leiby was kidnapped and murdered on his way home from day camp one year ago, and his disappearance brought the Jewish communities around the world together, as all prayed for his safety and mourned his tragic death.

Dukes was inspired to compose this song after seeing thousands mobilize to help the family search for their beloved son. "This song is about one boy, a boy whom we all loved but never met," Dukes told COLlive.

"It is about the effect that this one, young, innocent child had on the entire world: he united a nation. He proved that we can work together as one, and showed us that we are one. He taught us that we can have pure, ahavas chinam- even towards someone we have never met. He taught us the power of one: of one individual, of one people, of one heart."

"Letís continue to live Leibyís lesson. Letís be there to help one man, one woman, one child, one neshama. Letís have ahavas chinam towards a complete stranger. We can do it. Leiby showed us that we can."

A Song ?
How about a Siyum on a Mesechta or if every1 took on a Mesechta 2 learn 4 the 1st yartzeit ? Learning 4 his Neshama is way more than a song. Thats all we could do. There has 2 b a Siyum going on 4 sure 4 the 1st Yartzeit. Thank u 4 ur song but I think Lemud HaTorah is way more important than a song 4 this boy. Sorry.

Why has Levi Aron still not been tried?
The judicial/correctional system is messed up in more ways than you can imagine. They purposely WAIT a long, long time before they try sick criminals like Aron, so that people should forget about the anger they have toward the criminal.

Brothers, do not let this man get away!

A Balm to the Soul!
what a beautiful melody, it is chilling yet soothing to my soul. once, twice, three times is not enough, I keep playing it again and again. the beauty of this tune, reflects the beauty of little leiby a'h
somehow it motivates me to want to do acts of kindness and to just forgive puting our petty egos aside for the sake of ahavas chinam...thank you Ms. Dukes and Mr.Gershovsky

The beauty and soul of your music!!
I believe the lyrics would take away the spritual place Sara's music takes me to. Your music takes me to a quiet place within my self, where I can reach deep within.
I think any lyrics would detract from the beauty and purity of the music.
LISTEN to the music... and HEAR the words the music speaks to you...
Sarah, your music speaks words to me. Congratulations once again.

The inspiration of your melody and message is so much appreciated. The depth of purpose is clearly evident and is a bright light in the darkness of an all-too-often, cruel, and cold world.

for the person who wrote a song
yes learning for liebies neshama is importand and it is done everyday since his tragic death but music is also for the neshama and it is from hashem and if sarah came up with this beautiful song for liebies memory it is from her neshama from hashem and it will go straight up to heaven for lieby to hear so we must not take anything for grantid and thank hashem for everything that is so beautiful..sara this is a song that came straight from gan eden...beautiful.
