Hayom is the title track and the latest single to be released from singer/songwriter/guitarist Yitzy Kaplowitz’s upcoming debut album.
A number of years ago at a time when there were many tragedies happening in Eretz Yisrael I sat down at the piano and composed this song. It’s a heartfelt tefilah, a call for the RBS”O to bench us with shalom, true peace, the ultimate blessing.
The events that occurred this year prompted me to release this song now. In my lifetime I can’t think of a time where the world seemed to be more upside down. Our yeshivas, and our shuls were forced to close. Our lives were upended, jobs and incomes were gone, we lost gedolim, family and friends. Yet this was all decreed last Rosh Hashanah.
As I prepare to sit before the Melech Malchei Hamlachim this Rosh Hashanah, I know there is one thing that I need to plead for, shalom! We need Shalom, the true peace that we will only experience with the rebuilding of the Beis Hamikdash Bmheirah Byameinu.
I hope this song inspires you to do the same.
May we all be zoche to a Kesiva Vchasima Tovah!!
