Work Overview

Shalom Aleichem is a liturgical song, or piyyut. Piyyut is the name commonly given to a sacred song in Hebrew. Shalom Aleichem is sung as part of the kabbalat Shabbat ceremony, welcoming the Sabbath on the Friday evening after prayers at the synagogue and before the kiddush blessing over a cup of wine, and prior to the Sabbath meal.

Shalom Aleichem is a song that moves me with its intensity every time I hear it. For me it symbolizes more than anything else the faith and the survival of the Jewish tradition, through all the tragedies.
