Songs that help Hatzolah volunteers realign to a place of calm in the storm — and give an infusion of courage to keep going
s the coronavirus pandemic continues to affect every corner of the Jewish world, flooding the lines of Hatzolah dispatchers, these past weeks have shown Hatzolah volunteers’ 24/7 fortitude and devotion in a crisis that has upended our collective sense of security. As these heroes return from those wrenching calls and try to retain a level of balance and stability in their own homes, is there a song or niggun that helps them realign to a place of calm in the storm — and gives an infusion of courage to keep going?
Always Giving Thanks
I’m both a Hatzolah member and a nurse at Maimonides Hospital in Brooklyn, which is on the front line of this pandemic. One song which has been a huge source of chizuk for me during this time is “THANK YOU HASHEM,” by Joey Newcomb.
