"The Beinoni" 1983

Singing the "Beinoni" at a Farbrengin with the Lubavitcher Rebbe. On 12 Tammuz, 5743 – June 23, 1983.

The previous Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rav Yosef Yitzchok, called this song "Der Beinoni" after the personality profile described in the Sefer Tanya Kadisha. The Beinoni is the name given to one who constantly strives in his service of Hashem. He struggle against his selfish drives and always wins the battle. But unlike the righteous man, his evil inclination is alive and well, and he must continuously fight it. The melody called The Beinoni reflects this struggle.
