A beautiful parody of a beautiful song composed by a Jewish musician, Paul Simon.
If the message of the original “Sound of Silence” was, as Simon says, “”the inability of people to communicate with each other, not particularly internationally, but especially emotionally, so what you see around you are people unable to love each other”, this parody is truly the antithesis, and perhaps the answer, to that perception.
“The Sound of Shabbos”, is a sound that encompasses Jewish unity throughout the ages. It is truly what joined the Jewish People together as they struggled through centuries of exile and persecution. It was light, hope, and connection for Jews everywhere. The songs, prayers, blessings and customs which make up the Sabbath are the emotional connection of every Jew to his People and to his God.
Beyond doubt a beautiful sound – of Shabbos.
