As described in this week’s parsha, experience the exodus with this rendition of B’tzeis Yisrael – “when Israel came out of Egypt” by Chazzan Aryeh Leib Hurwitz.

The melody for “B’tzeis Yisrael” was composed in the 1930s by the second rebbe of the Modzitzer Chasidim – known as the author of the “Imrei Shaul”. In 61 years of his life, the Rebbe composed more than 1,500 melodies and is considered one of the most prolific Jewish composers.

The melody, published by Ben Zion Shenker, has become one of the most popular melodies from the Hallel prayer. Arrangements by Laszlo Roth and Ofir Sobol.
