Chabad news-site COLlive recently featured 2 English songs from JMR’s Mendel “the Sheichet”.
The first song, titled Isn’t Your Cup Full?features touching lyrics by Pesha Leah Azoulay OBM, who wrote them a short time before her traggic passing just over a month ago.

The second song, titled Yacov’s Struggle is part of a project Mendel is working on based on the poetry of his friend Ian Heiss. Ian’s soon-to-be published book, Blueprints of the Universe, includes a poem for each Parsha in the Torah. Yacov’s Struggle is based on the poem for Parshas Toldos.
