about

Percussionist Shoshana Jedwab steps away from her drum to sing her deep and magical sacred compositions.

These seven songs, born from Shoshana Jedwab’s intuitive musical work in community and her immersion in sacred literature as a career Jewish educator, are reflections on ancient and medieval Hebrew poets, wise women, Hassidic masters, Sufi mystics, and contemporary teachers.

Each song explores a unique landscape that taps simultaneously into the Hebrew and world soul.

The album was co-produced in New York and northern Israel’s Galilee
region, by ethnomusicologist Neva Wartell and Klezska founder and
band-leader Glenn Tamir, with stellar contributions by
multi-instrumentalists Eyal Luman and Mark Ettinger.

I can’t believe all you have done for me
Healing me with kindness and a love I can feel
Keep far away all trouble and pain
Protect me
Please keep me safe
And may these words that I dare to say
Be your will, my Rock who saves

And always shine on me a generous sun
With wings of light healing me with love
Always shine on me a generous sun
With wings of light healing me with love
Healing me with love

Our lives are a gift of your mercy and delight
Oh generous Lover of Life
But even heartbreak can heal cause in the darkness I find
You near shining love like a light

So always shine on me a generous sun
With wings of light healing me with love
Always shine on me a generous sun
With wings of light healing me with love
Healing me with love

The whole wide world is a very narrow bridge
Don’t be afraid of it
The whole wide world is a very narrow bridge

The whole wide world is a very narrow thread
I think I’ll follow it
The whole wide world is a very narrow thread

The whole wide world is abundant colored string
Scarlet, purple, blue and green
The whole wide world is abundant colored string

The whole wide world is in the Weaver’s hand
Fire, water, air and land
The whole wide world is in the Weaver’s hand

The whole wide world is the sacred work of Love
Earth and Heaven, Moon and Sun
The whole wide world is the sacred work of Love

The whole wide world is many strands in One
Those who’ve come and those who’ve gone
The whole wide world is many strands in One

The whole wide world is a very narrow bridge
Don’t be afraid of it
The whole wide world is a very narrow bridge

Very narrow bridge
Very narrow thread
Abundant colored string
In the Weaver’s hand
The sacred work of Love
Many strands in One
The whole wide world is a very narrow bridge

Nishmat kol hai tvareich et shimcha et shmeich
The breathing of all life is blessing your name
But I have nothing to say
I have nothing to pray
So Spirit practice a song through me

Kol atzmotai tomarna, Adonai mi kamocha
All of my bones are speaking their truth,
My Divine, who is like You
But I have nothing to say
I have nothing to pray
So Spirit practice a song through me

Borchi nafshi et Adonai vchol kravai et shem kodsho
My body is blessing my Divine
The Holy Name – the song of my insides
But I have nothing to say
I have nothing to pray
So Spirit practice a song through me
