pOddcast - Mi Chamocha

New on the pOddcast: a version of Mi Chamocha written by Dan Nichols, and recorded by Orin and Cantor Seth Warner and his assistant Dan Geigerman at Congregation Shaare Emeth in Creve Coeur, MO.

Maybe some of you don't know: Orin on many Friday nights and Saturday mornings, when not Oddwalking, accompanies services at this Reform Jewish congregation.  They are putting together a CD of some of their liturgical music to give to new members.  So on Seth's laptop (featuring what else, Garageband!) a dozen or so songs were recorded.  This one is probably Orin's favorite.  The text is from Exodus, it's the song the Israelites sang just after crossing the Red Sea and escaping slavery.  It's in Hebrew; here's one translation.  Passover has just begun for Jews.  (Remarkable too that Pope Benedict visited a synagogue during his USA visit.)

As always, you can find the podcast in the gcast window in the blog sidebar or over at the main site.
