Carlebach Havdala with Menachem Herman and Rabbi Lazer Brody
In Judaism, the new week begins with ushering out the holy Sabbath and welcoming the new week, differentiating between the holy and the mundane. This ceremony, called "Havdala" (Hebrew for "differentiation") was done beautifully in song by Rabbi Shlomo Carlebach, of blessed memory. Here, Menachem Herman and Rabbi Lazer perform the Havdala in Carlebach tradition.
