This beautiful, introspective setting of "Achat Sha’alti" (an excerpt from Psalm 27, recited daily throughout the month of Elul) was composed by Wald & Mendelowitz, and comes from the Chasidic tradition.
"One thing I ask, only this do I seek; to dwell in your house, all the days of my life; to behold your loveliness, in the light of your temple dawn”.
These words are followed by Debbie Friedman’s stirring setting of "Oseh Shalom", a fervent prayer for peace and wholeness.
