At the current time, I am making available a Music CD that is very special to me. It is entitled, "Davening Friday Night with an Angel."
This CD was created by a very dear friend, Cantor Shmully Blesofsky, from the famous cantorial Blesofsky family in Crown Heights. Shmully is gifted with a rare and beautiful voice, and at my urging, he went into a Professional Music Studio in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and made a CD of him singing the Friday Night Kabbalat service. I asked him to do this, as a special favor, for the times when I can not get to Synagogue on Shabbos, but I still want want to pray and get a strong spiritual connection before sundown.
About a half hour before candle lighting, I put on his CD, and daven along with him. There are 17 tracks on the CD, from different parts of the service.
I have prayed all over the world, with many special people with strong Kavanah, but I don't get the spiritual connection I get when I Daven with Shmully.
