A Place Where We Belong

There was a song written many years ago by Abie Rotenberg, in his Album Journeys 1, about a Sefer Torah that survived the Holocaust.  The Torah was found all alone in a place that it didn't belong.  These days, our Sifrei Torah find themselves alone once again.  However, there is a major difference.  The scrolls are in the precise place in which they belong.  This time it's us that find ourselves in a place that we don't belong.  I hope that you will all enjoy this new beautiful and meaningful new composition from Abie Rotenberg.


  1. A friend sent me this song the other day. Within two minutes of listening to the song I was tearing up. A very good song.

  2. Whoa! Incredible song. Powerful tefillah. Thank you so much for sharing this.
    Chag Kasher v'Samayach. Good health to all.

  3. Follow-up comment... I enjoy the visual reference to Torah Scribes in the video... and I do want to emphasize that the Torah scrolls will be fine on their own for now... and now is the time for no minyanim, which in the Coronavirus pandemic, is the greatest act of chesed, the highest expression of love for our families, kehillot, neighbours, friends and fellow human beings. We'll appreciate reading and holding and dancing with our Sifrei Torah when this is passed. But for now, the Torah scrolls are on vacation.
