Az Der Rebbe

COUNTRY: Russia/Poland

GENRE: Klezmer

An “Old World” Yiddish song about how much Hasidic Jews revere their rabbi. Often performers like the guys in the video below make this song light and funny, though this Leonard Cohen version is neither, and it’s still pretty great.

Lyrics of All Around This World version:

Az der rebe zingt, az der rebe zingt,
Zingn ale khasidim
When the rabbi sings, when the rabbi sings
Everyone sings with the rabbi.
