Yankie Drebin's New Song - My Child - Music Video

This song is about how Hashems love for us is unconditional, the way a parent loves a child. When my daughter was little I used to lay with her every night until she fell asleep, and once she would fall asleep I would give her a kiss and say I love you. One night, after she fell asleep, I was thinking how it doesn’t really make any sense for me to love her so much when there’s nothing she's ever done for me, or ever given me a reason to love her. If anything she only made my life harder, taking on such an enormous responsibility.

That's when I realized that this love that we have for our children is not meant to make sense, because we can’t possibly comprehend the love Hakadosh Baruch Hu has for us. The only way we can possibly begin to understand the way Hashem values and loves each and every one of us is by Him giving us the gift of unconditional love for our children. However good or bad you may think you are, Hashem’s love is unwavering. A child can bring his parents tremendous angst and worry but at no point does the child question the love his parents have for him.

My hope for this song is not only for you to understand this love that Hashem has for us, but to really feel it so that we can continue growing closer to Him.

absolutely beautiful and riveting.
Kabbalah and chassidus teach us that every Jews neshama is literally a " CHELEK ELOKAI MAMASH" our neshamas have a spark of divinity,in other words HASHEMS DNA is part of our soul,that is why he has this unconditional and infinite love for each and every one of us,and that is the exact same reason we have this unconditional love for our children being they carry our genes and DNA
