The Niggun from Georgia that Became a Chabad Niggun

In honor of the Aseres Y’mei Tshuva, ba’al menagen Rabbi Menachem Amar performed the niggun Adon Haslichot, a melody composed in Georgia which the Rebbe requested be added to Sefer Hanigunim.

In honor of the Aseres Y’mei Tshuva, ba’al menagen Rabbi Menachem Amar released the niggun Adon Haslichot as a single.

Adon Haslichot is a melody that originates from the Edot Hamizrach in Georgia, Russia, where they would sing itat the end of selichos before Rosh Hashanah.

In 5731, when the chassidim from Georgia first came to 770, the Rebbe asked them to sing a melody from their country, and they chose Adon Haslichot.

Later, the Rebbe asked that the melody be included in Sefer Haniggunim as a Chabad niggun, and it was published there as niggun 250.
