The Andrew Lloyd Webber of Hasidic Music

Musicians and scholars set out to prove the famed Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev authored several disputed Hasidic melodies.

Avrum Leib Burstein closes his eyes, coaxes his accordion, and quietly sings a Hasidic melody, known as a niggun, by Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev. Yechiel ‏"Chilik"‏) Frank joins him on clarinet, and together they transform the Young Yiddish Center in Jerusalem into 18th-century Berditchev.
