Rabbi Lazer takes us to the holy city of Tzfat. Here, we visit the gravesite of the famed scholar, Kabbalist and poet Rabbi Elazar Azkari (1533-1600). He composed the beautiful melody Yedid Nefesh (“friend of the soul”), which we all sing on Shabbat. We include in this clip the original Hebrew lyrics in English transliteration with a lovely vocal rendition by Asaf Neve Shalom.
