Musical Monday: “Sabbath Prayer”

I know; it isn’t the sabbath anymore.  But this is a beautiful song for anytime, anywhere.  I love how it affirms tradition and ritual and the hopes that parents have for their kids.  I sang it once in a high school production of “Fiddler on the Roof,” but twenty years later, it means a lot more to me now.   Life experience will do that.

“Sabbath Prayer” from Fiddler on the Roof.  Music by Jerry Bock, lyrics by Sheldon Harnick.
