Aaron Razel‘s previous album Kavati Et Moshavi has turned into both a flag and a symbol for him. Different groups that love Torah and the Beit Midrash have stood behind the sounds and the words of the song and turned it into the album that has stuck out the most in 2013. Aaron is now driving his message from that of Love of Torah and working deeply on it towards another direction in his new album. Razel, who is a member of an Israeli family that is dripping with musical talent, indicated with his previous album the destination that he longs for the deepest–The Beit Midrash. His long journey towards Torah influenced and continues to influence his compositions.
The new hit was created with the “Chevra” on the grass. Many times Razel is invited to Kumzitz’s, and basically it always happens that spontaneously he will be asked to to compose either a song or a niggun on the spot for the crowd. This past summer, in one of the camps that he was performing at, between the hours of 1 and 4 in the morning, the song Shir Haruchot was born.
The words of the song mean “Even if all of the winds in the world came to try and blow us away, we will not be moved from here!” This is the modern explanation that Razel gives to the Mishnah in Pirkei Avos that says that anyone whose actions are greater than his wisdom is compared to a tree whose leaves are minimal but whose roots are plentiful. Even if all of the winds in the world come to try and blow it away, the tree will not be moved from its spot.
