ל׳ בסיון ה׳תשע״ב (June 20, 2012)
A collection of Chabad niggunim which range from stirring, profound and introspective, to lively tunes expressing the joy of serving G-d. These nigunim by Avraham Fried reveal the profundity of mind and inspiration of the heart as felt by the Chasid in his service of avodas Hashem.
A Chabad nigun refines the singer and transforms him into a more spiritually-sensitive person.
