After the experience of this year’s Kinus Hashluchim which was held mostly via zoom, Chabad musician Arale Lipsker was inspired to record a cheerful yet unconventional medley called ‘The shluchim dance’.
In collaboration with fellow Motti K, the pair set out to recreate the atmosphere of spontaneous dancing at the end of the banquet.
For that they used the customary playlist of joyful niggunim from which thousands of shluchim dance and draw energy for their return home, while in the background you can hear Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky reading the names of the countries of all the Shluchim.
“Seeing the mixed feelings of the Shluchim who were unable to travel to New York as they do every year, and were forced to settle for a regional Kinus or watch the virtual broadcast, I just knew I had to do something,” Lipsker told Anash.org. “I sat down and recorded this medley, along with the original soundtrack from the rollcall at the Banquet.”
