Can anyone recommend a song for a chosson to walk down to? Would really appreciate any ideas.
Od yishama be’arei yehudah. Uvechutzos Yerushalaim: Kol sason vekol simchah, Kol chasan vekol kalah.
Bilvavi Mishkan Evneh (Rabbi Shlomo Brazil)
Gam ki eilech b’gei tzalmaves
One which the kalloh also likes!
Thanks. Can you provide links to the songs or videos?
Isn’t the minhag to sing Mi Adir?
Ask your musician. They usually have suggestions. And if you ask him about Bilvali or whatever, he should be able to get you a sample.
Chaver: Mi Adir is normally sung once the chosson is under the chupa. The question was what song to walk down the aisle.
gavriel613: I am not sure I agree with your comment. At that moment the chosson wants to hear the music to a song that he has an emotional connection to, not necessarily something the kallah agrees to. The kallah is generally not near the chupah room at the time and probably wouldn’t hear it anyway. I believe the same thing for the kallah. She wants to walk down to a song that she has an emotional connection to. Personally, I wanted my wife to walk down to Eishes Chayil. She didn’t want to and therefore did not.
Thanks for the input.
Also, saw in the chasson/kalah guide, a dance teacher in Lakewood. Is there one in Brooklyn?
ד׳ בובות u don’t needa be lubavitch to use it 😀
Whatever song means something to you and will elicit in you the emotions that you wish to have elicited at that time.
