I just came across this beautiful song played by a blind composer as an elegy for the victims of the Tsunami of 2011 in Japan. He gets so emotional as he plays that tears are streaming from his eyes.

Thing is, the music in the first part of the song sounds very familiar. Does it sound
familiar to anyone else ? Where is it from?

That was really beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

It does have a ring of familiarity, but it may be similar to something.

My husband and I also love that song. Check out Schumann Kinderzennen. We thought it sounded somewhat similar maybe.

Thanks, I will.
I may be imagining it, but I hear strains of Rosh Hashanah davening in there. It's for sure a tune I have heard before.

Ann be slow? What's that?
I also totally sang along to the first part. I know I have heard it before.

Which Haneshama Lach ?
I know 3. Baruch Levine, Carlebach and eitan Katz.

Eta: YES I heard Haneshama Lach by Carlebach, just the first part. But then he goes off onto something else.
Omg. It's so beautiful.

Eitan Katz's version is entitled "L'Ma'ancha". Of course it contains the words "Haneshama Lach", but let's not confuse a song's official title with its opening -- or, as in this case, later -- words.
"Ha'aderes v'haEmuna" is officially "Chai Olamim".
"I Have a Little Dreidel" is "The Dreidel Song".
"Achas Sho'alti" by Pirchei is "Shivti". (I was a schoolmate of its composer.)
"Shmor Na Aleinu" is "Tefillah".
"Oif'n Pripitchik" is "Der Alef Bays".
And on and on.

Haneshomah lach

Yes. And isn't it fascinating that they both thought up the same tune? Carlebach predates this guy by many years. And I'm sure that he was not influenced by carlebach.

The song actually reminds me of an Israeli tune.

Thanks choir mistress.
Unfortunately, or fortunately, songs - once released to the public - take on a life of their own. The composer may have called the song by one title, but if the public decides to call it by another name, that will become its name.
I have seriously never heard of "Oif'n Pripitchek" referred to as "Der Aleph bais". If the composer had that in mind, well, it didn't stick.
Same with Ha'aderes vehaemunah and achas Shoalti.


Bottom line, in the majority of cases, a song will become known by the first words, or (as in the case of most English Songs) the first words of the chorus.
In the case in point, I know that eitan Katz's song is called l'maancha. That is the first word of the song.

The reason I listed it as one of the three is simply because I was once in Choir that put those three "haneshama lach" songs together in a medley.

The caption to the video says it is his own composition: "Elegy for the Victims of the Tsunami of March 11, 2011 in Japan".

Yes I know. That's why I am fascinated that the first part is eerily similar to Haneshama lach. And the whole rest of the song just makes me think of a blend of Yigal Calek and Yossi Green....

Thanks for that, OP.
I have never heard of two, far less three, tunes to Haneshama Lach being performed as a medley. Am I correct in assuming that one of the other two was by Carlebach?

As I mentioned, one is by Baruch Levine from one of his earliest albums.
Then there's the carlebach one that was posted above.
Iirc, I think we started with Lmaancha from Eitan Katz, then went into Baruch Levine and then Finished with carlebach.

Eta. This is Haneshama Lach from Baruch Levine. It is a hidden gem.
