The RCCS-inspired single, “I Believe in Miracles”, composed by Yossi Green and originally sung by Avraham Fried, has now been re-worded and sung in Yiddish by Chassidic singing star,Shloime Daskal. The new masterpiece, entitled “Rachamim” (mercy), was written by the talented badchan and singer, Moti Ilowitz, with back-up harmonies by Yossi Green.
Shloime Daskal, Yossi Green, Yisroel Lamm, and other stars in the world of Jewish music combined their unique talents to produce this theme song to benefit the many hundreds of cancer patients being assisted by RCCS, the Rofeh Cholim Cancer Society.
The theme, “Rachamim” is a heart-wrenching plea to HaShem to have mercy on his children who are suffering from this dreaded disease. It is a song of hope and a song of strength.
Yossi Green, one of the leading composers in contemporary Jewish music was inspired to compose the song as a result of his first-hand knowledge of the accomplishments of RCCS. When Shlomo Daskal, one of the leading singers in the Chassidic music field heard the song, he readily agreed to take part in this Chessed undertaking and sing it for the Yiddish speaking aficionados. And for those who know Yisroel Lamm, it is easy to guess that he immediately agreed to arrange and conduct the music.
The result is obvious to anyone with a discerning ear; it is hard to listen and not be inspired, even if you don’t understand Yiddish.
The single will be available soon on www.rccscancer.org
