Prepping for Shabbat at the Kotel
A perfect song to get you in the mood
If we were in New York, we’d be getting ready to head into work. Instead, we’re preparing for Shabbat services at the Kotel. Akiva Gottlieb, whose earliest dreams of a transcendent Kabbalat Shabbat at the Kotel were inspired by first hearing this classic by Mordechai Ben David (“The King of Jewish Music”) around the old neighborhood, is watching this on a nonstop loop in his room. Shabbat Shalom, from Jerusalem.
