Legendary Yiddish composer Reb Yom Tov Ehrlich sings “Yaakov,” which he composed some 67 years ago at the 1946 wedding of the song’s hero – Reb Yaakov Potash.
Interestingly, just this past year, Reb Yom Tov and Reb Yaakov became Michutonim up in heaven, as their respective great grandchildren got married to each other.
