Yatzanu Mimitzrayim

B’chol dor va’dor chayavim anu lirot et atzmeinu k’ilu yatzanu mimitzrayim / In every generation, we must see ourselves as though we were freed from Egypt 

In this Pesach season, we share this recording from CBST’s 26th Annual Music Benefit concert “Mourning into Dancing: Music of Courage, Resilience, and Transformation”.

“Yatzanu Mimitzrayim” is performed by HUC Cantorial student Ze’evi Tovlev (guitar and vocal) and CBST Cantorial Intern Sam Rosen (vocal). This contemporary setting of words from the Passover Haggadah has been updated to include people of all gender expressions.

Each year, the Passover seder represents the sanctified space in which Jews recall the story of the Exodus from Egypt. By repeating these words as well as the beloved words and music of “Dayeinu” (It would have been enough) we identify and give voice to all those whose freedom and safety still remains uncertain.

Music: Elana Arian and Noah Aronson

Voices: CBST Cantorial Intern Sam Rosen and Cantorial Student Ze’evi Tovlev
