Baruch Levine: Abie’s Legacy Song


ome would say “Joe DiMaggio’s Card” [Journeys 3], some would say “Memories,” but I think it’s “Neshome’le” [Journeys 2] because its lesson is literally the point of life, and the impact never fades. Of course, “Acheinu” [Lev V’Nefesh 1] is so famous, probably his best-known contemporary song, but to me, “Haben Yakir Li” [Dveykus 3] will always be special. It takes so much to write a song like that, and Abie gave us part of his heart in that song.
