Can it be love?

“There are gates in heaven that cannot be opened except by melody and song.”— Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liady, founder of Chabad

At the Jewish Music Festival
Two chassidim
One with a clarinet
One with a base
Long black coats
Black trilbies
Peies = Curls along the ears
One long red beard, one black one
Assisted by an accordeon
A violin and percussions
Playing niguns
Sounds, no words
Meant to cheer up the Sabbath
The mere side of them made my heart jump
The orthodoxy showing how music, sounds,
movement, humour can lift us up to another level
I did not dare but I longed to laugh out loud
Louder than loud
What else can it be than love?
Love for music, love for each other,
Love for the World, love for the divine.
