Shoshanas Yaakov

We all sing it, but what does it really mean? Click here for a line-by-line analysis of the everyone's favorite Purim song: Shoshanas Yaakov. Recorded live at Gerber & Co.

Aside from the standard tune for Shoshanas Yaakov, a lively and comedic operatic version was composed in 1920 by Rabbi Shaul Yedidya Elazar Taub, the Modzitzer Rebbe. You can hear it here, recorded in the sweetest of voices by Ben Tzion Shenker
