A new single by singer Simche Friedman pairs a niggun attributed to the Tzemach Tzedek with words written by the Mitteler Rebbe in the name of his father, the Alter Rebbe. He says the song was composed almost spontaneously.

One Shabbos, I chanced upon a letter from the Mitteler Rebbe where which he writes in the name of his father, the Alter Rebbe a “tested and proven” segula for bonei, chayei umezonei (children, health and livelihood) What is the segula “To daven with song and joy.” Gevaldik!” Simcha Friedman said.

“I have always heard of different segulos: Adding in yiras shomaim, increasing your ahavas yisroel, giving tzedaka, and many more, but such a segula? Just to pray with a melody? – Amazing! I was so excited about the idea that the rhyme of daven mit a niggun – a fargenigen! immediately flashed in my mind,” he said.

The tune is a niggun attributed to the Tzemach Tzedek, as sung by Reb David Horowitz from Lod.
