Subject: RE: Holocaust/shoa songs. In memory.
Complying with Joe Offer's request, here are the words to the song Ani Maamin.
"Ani Maamin beemunah shelaymah, bevias Hamashiach. English Translation (non-singable)
Veaf al pi sheyismomayah, im kol zeh, Ani Maamin"
"I believe with complete faith in the coming of the Messiah, and even though he may delay, nevertheless I believe."
The words were written by the 11th century sage, Rabbi Moses Miamonides as part of his 13 principles of faith. This one is #12.
The haunting melody has been around for at least 200 years and has been passed down from generation to generation.
The song has been recorded by Avraham Fried on his album "No Jew Will Be Left Behind", which is dstributed by Holyland Records. It is available in most Jewish book stores. SOL ZELLER
