Israeli Song of the Week: (Song of the Circle) קול גלגל

This week's words of Torah will be provided by the Israeli band "Fools of the Prophecy." I remember first hearing this song at the 10th anniversary commemoration of the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin in Tel Aviv. It was a moving ceremony with Israeli political leaders, musicians, and personal friends of his, President Bill and Hillary Clinton. This is a great, beautiful song with which to welcome Shabbat. You can access a translation of the lyrics here.
