Yehuda Katz Sings the Traditional Blessing for Daughters

In this video, American-Israeli singer Yehuda Katz performs the traditional Friday night blessing for daughters in Hebrew. In order to show respect for the sanctity of God’s name, the word “Hashem” (literally, ‘the name’) is substituted. Yehuda Katz, a close friend and student of the late Reb Shlomo Carlebach, is the founder of AMI: Artists and Musicians for Israel, an organization that uses art workshops and concerts to teach young people around the world about Israeli culture and Judaism.
