Shwekey in Hebron… Dedicates Song to Gal Koby

Each year, tens of thousands of Jews take one of these days and go to Hebron...
Yaakov Shwekey

Yaakov Shwekey

I’m not there – I wish I was… but today, there are over 30,000 Jews in our ancient and modern city of Hebron, beside the Cave of the Patriarchs. It is documented in the Bible, perhaps the longest living real estate transaction in history.

Abraham bought the cave as a burial place for his wife; there he was buried. His son Isaac is buried there, as his wife Rebecca. Their son, Yaakov, is buried there… and his wife, Leah. Most years, going to Hebron on the joyous holiday of Sukkot. We have so many holidays that are serious, that brings us to tears…this is one of fun and joy and most Jews just love this holiday.

And each year, tens of thousands of Jews take one of these days and go to Hebron… it is an incredible journey to our forefathers – and they are there waiting for us.

This year, there were tears as Shwekey, a popular and incredibly talented singer came to perform. He dedicated this song, Tateh, Tateh – Father… to Gal Koby, who was murdered in Hebron just two days ago.

Here’s the video from Hebron – where Shwekey changed some of the words and it was accompanied by pictures of Gal…below this video – another video with the English translation…



Just part of this amazing song….

This is my home, my request
Where our forefathers rest
For our father, Avraham
Answer us, in the credit or Yitzchak (Isaac) and Yaakov
I beg of You
And in the credit of our mothers
He pours out his soul
To our Father in Heaven,
The anguish of your children knows no end
Reach out to us with Your helping hand
How much more can the people of Israel take
Remember the compassion of our fathers, for our sake

May the memory of Gal Koby be blessed. He was, according to so many, a precious and pure soul. Gal died protecting his people…and the resting place of our forefathers. Today, 30,000 people were there – so many with tears in their eyes…but more, today Avraham and Sarah, Yitzchak and Rivka, Yaakov and Leah and Rachel…all cry for Gal and for our people.

May his blood be avenged and may his killer never have a day of peace for the rest of his miserable life.
