Moshe Dovid Weissman is back with a brand new single from his upcoming second album. His first album, Avoda Shebalev was released with much critical acclaim. The all new single, Avodas Hasheleimus was produced and arranged by Moshe Dovid together with the legendary blues guitarist Lazer Lloyd. The vocals were sung by Aryeh Simon with harmonies by Yerachmiel Ziegler.
In pre-war Europe, in Yeshivas Ohel Torah in Baranovich, the students of Rav Elchonon Wasserman ZTZ”L HY”D used to sing a niggun about the hard work a Jew has to do on his way to achieving perfection. Each step along the way is “Avoda” – in both senses of the word – hard work and service to Hashem. The sacrifices that a Jew makes as he strives to perfect himself should be viewed as Korbonos that he is sacrificing to Hashem on the Mizbayach.
Moshe Dovid Weissman’s son found about this old niggun from his Rebbe, who heard the Niggun from an elderly Talmid Chacham who was a student in Baranovich. He asked his father to compose a new melody for the words, and Moshe Dovid complied, creating this beautiful, poignant song.
