You spend hours in the studio or on stage, tweaking the niggun you hope will be the season’s hit or singing what the audience wants to hear. But when you’re home with your family, which song do you find yourself connecting to?

“The current favorite song at our Shabbos table is Avrum Mordche Schwarz’s “Lomir machen Kiddush oif der gantzer veldt — Let’s make Kiddush over the whole world.” The words really speak to us, somehow emphasizing the presence of Shabbos in our home — and I have to say, we play it in the car on weekdays too.”
