The Baal Hatanya's Niggun Daled Bavos

In honor of Yud Tes Kislev or YA"T Kislev, the Chag Hageulah of the Baal Hatanya, we present The Niggun "Daled Bavos" sung at the Lubavitcher Rebbe's Farbrengin on 19 Kislev 5744/1983 in 770 Eastern Parkway, Brooklyn, NY.

This day marks the anniversary of the liberation, in 5559 (1798), of the Alter Rebbe, founder of Chabad Chasidus, from his imprisonment in Petersburg, Russia, after being denounced by his opponents for his activities on behalf of Chasidus.  The 19th of Kislev therefor symbolizes the victory of the Chassidic movement, especially of Chabad, which since then began to take root and spread throughout the Jewish world.

THe Nigun Podo V'sholom This melody is an appropriate setting to verses from Tehilim 55. Dovid Hamelech expresses his praise and thankfulness to the Creator, who has delivered him from the hand of his enemies, in answer to the prayers of his many friends who aided him and for whom he beseeches the Al-mighty to answer their requests. He implores the Almighty to punish the wicked. The Psalmist himself has absolute faith in the L-rd, who does not forsake the righteous.

Podo V'sholom is the traditional melody sung by the Lubavitcher Chassidim each year at their farbrengen (get-together) on the 19th of Kislev.
