Video: Young Shliach Performs ‘Rostover Niggun’

Chaim Chitrik, a young Shliach living in Istanbul, Turkey, performs the stirring Niggun Rostov of the Rebbe Rashab on violin. One of the more serious of the Chabad melodies, Niggun Rostov is characterized by its deep feeling and soul searching expression.

The 5th Lubavitcher Rebbe “Rashab”, Rabbi Sholom DovBer, was fond of this melody and sang it often. During World-War I, he left his native city of Lubavitch and settled in Rostov (in southern Russia), where he resided until his passing in 5680 (1920). It is therefore known as the Rostover Nigun-melody. The melody is usually sung before the Rebbe began his Torah or Chassidic discourses.
