Every year at the end of June the largest Jewish Culture Festival is held in Krakow Poland. Since the opening concert is always on a Sunday, the religious performers arrive before the Sabbath. When the Cantors, Singers and Musicians get together to spend Shabbat together, there is always singing and lots of fun in the air. It has become a tradition in Krakow that thousands fill the Tempel Synagogue to join the Melave Malka feast - The Final Sabbath feast where we escort the Shabbes queen out.
In this song composed by Mordechai Gebirtig who lived in Krakow, we plead to Hashem & to the world for an eternal Shabbes - Eternal Peace.
The Melave Malka took place at this beautiful synagogue in the Kazimierz district. The Moorish Revival building was designed by Ignacy Hercok, and built in 1860--1862 along Miodowa Street.
At the piano we hear Maestro Daniel Gildar.
Concert produced by Januz Makuch and Yossi Notkowitz of Halleluyah Productions.
