‘Chamol,’ Sung By Chaim Kiss, Is an Inspiration

Those of us fortunate enough to live in the Teaneck community know that the name Chaim Kiss connotes love of Eretz Yisroel, of his fellow Jew, and especially his love of music.

Recently, Chaim was given the opportunity, at a Carlebach yahrzeit minyan, to sing a new song written by Rafi Kellerman, the president of Congregation Ohav Shalom, and arranged by Jon Rimberg. A great fan of Shlomo Carlebach, Chaim felt honored to have been able to sing with him during his lifetime.

The song, titled “Chamol,” was written in honor of the bravery of the soldiers who are diligently fighting for our homeland day in and day out. Chaim actually had the opportunity recently to be at an army base at the Gaza border, singing together with the chayalim. He saw the strength it gave them and felt so much satisfaction in having the ability to share his passion in a way that lifted their morale. The words alone, beseeching Hashem to have mercy on everyone, was awe-inspiring.

He also brought his talent to Tel Hashomer Hospital, where he visited with and sang with chayalim who were there as a result of this horrendous war. He saw their spirits rise as the music engulfed the room.

“Chamol” is available on Spotify, YouTube and Instagram. Keep it up, Chaim; we are proud of you!
