As we approach 10 Shevat - the Fridikers Rebbe’s Histalkus - you can now prepare yourself with the this Nigun - and get 25 points, too!
The Beinoni was actually composed by R’ Aaron Charitonow, a Chossid of the Fridiker Rebbe, and the Shoichet of the city of Niklayev.
When the Frierdiker Rebbe heard the Nigun, he liked it very much and gave it the name, “the Beinoni”, because it expresses the struggle, and absolute resolve of the Beinoni (one who always must battle, but always also wins, his Yetzer Hora). The “translation” of the second part of the Nigun is: “If it’s really the truth, then why aren’t I actually acting that way?!”
The third part is quite musically challenging, and most people sing it incorrectly. It is an outpouring of the heart, and not necessarily musically “organized”. Listen for yourself, and try to learn the correct way to sing this beautiful Nigun! (Notice the first note of the Nigun, too!)
