Hevenu Shalom Aleichem


This is my daughter Lara’s favorite song. As she puts it: “Hevenu Shalom Aleichem is to Jewish people what J’entends le moulin is to French Canadians.” It is part of Canadian Mosaic (aka World Music Suite Two), a set that reflects the spirit of our multicultural existence and a celebration of diversity.
