The Angels are dancing in the candles in this amazing Shabbat classic

This song, Shalom Aleichem (“Peace be upon you”) is a traditional song sung by Jews every Friday night upon returning home from synagogue.

Written in the late 16th or early 17th century, the song welcomes the angels who are said to accompany a person home on the eve of the Sabbath.

“The Shuk” band seeks to “bring people of all backgrounds together with the aim of promoting dialogue, mutual respect, and understanding between cultures and people throughout the world,” according to its website.

The band “has performed in theatres and festivals in over 30 countries worldwide, using a fusionesque and diversified musical repertoire consisting of traditional, ethnic, jazz, Jewish, rock, progressive, and world music.”
