Cradle Songs from Paradise

by Rabbi Rita Leonard

NEW for the soon to come digital/cd release of Rabbi Rita Leonard’s ‘Cradle Songs from Paradise’ is STAR. This song is sung in Yiddish, Rabbi’s first language. Sought by collectors for its rarity, presently if found on tape only, the album known to fans as ‘Vig Lider fun Gan Eydn’ is being recast by request. This song is a Chanukah offering, especially for those eagerly awaiting the next inspired version of the very first recording set down in Hawaii when Rabbi was under the tutelage of her mentor. Rich with original & classic Jewish folktunes in the oldstyle was this album and for those remembering, its cover it presented RL with guitar, her baby embraced and sitting in the lap of her mentor Bella. One may recall the album by its original title, ‘Vig Lider fun Gan Eydn’. Representing this cut is a photograph Rabbi took of her temple’s original ark curtain, for it reflects the simplicity and beauty of the 6 million acres of the Adirondack state park wherein the shul is nestled.

Album Notes
When I was a child I was surrounded with the mameh-loshn, our sweet mother tongue of Yiddish.
And sung to me were the sweetest, dearest tunes imaginable that come to me in my darkest hour and bring me into the light of our truth. Listen, open and remember, thus you shall be strengthened.
