The Song of the Horse

Contemplating the horse’s vitality and service.


Each element of nature brings out a different aspect, revealing God's majesty and flawless benevolence. The songs of the universe are constant, filling the earth and the heavens. Even if the animals and inanimate creations have no mouths with which to sing, their very existence and function form a constant song of divine beauty. Yet they can only properly express their message if we, the conductors, utter the verses that they sing and live according to their meaning. These songs, collected in Perek Shira, were traditionally composed by King David and King Solomon. “Song of Existence” is a new video series which brings to life the music of the spiritual orchestra of Creation.

If you wish to partake in the continuation of the Song of Existence series and sponsor a song, you are welcome to contact us at info@songofexistence.org or to visit us at our website. our paypal address is donations@songofexistence.org. All contributions are used solely to cover our ongoing expenses of $350 per video and are displayed on our website.

Thank you for another inspiring video To see the strength and devotion of the horse to its master. It moved me to the core of my soul-realizing the strong unshakable faith of a Jewish soul . Thank you so very kindly for all the videos. They serve as messengers of faith through the eyes of our earthly creatures. Thank you.

Regards to Rav Ze'ev

When I saw the last name of the Rav associated with this video, I had a feeling it might be someone related to Rav Ze'ev.
I arrived at Ohr Somayach just before Elul, 1979.
I think Rav Ze'ev was already in the Collel at the time.
In any case, I remember his brief "Halacha after Shacharis" vortlach.
First, it was hilchos tochachah and then, hilchos Lashon Hara.

I also seem to recall Rav Ze'ev doing some leining, mostly on Mondays and Thursdays.

More, though, I remember his davening.
It always seemed as if he davened with all his physicality as well as his neshama.
This was never more apparent to me than during Chol HaMoed Sukkos of Tof-Shin-Mem (it was still 1979 and that year was a Shmittah year).
For whatever reason, Rav Ze'ev had taken a large and long Lulav that year and,
during Hallel he was doing the na'anuim.
It looked to me as if, had he shaken the minim any harder to his left, his whole body would follow.

I am hoping the Rav is well and delighted to learn that his son is a true Talmid Chacham, as well.
Shabbat Shalom,
