Jewish Song of the Week: ‘Blessing’ by Kenneth Lyonswright

May is a big month for family time, and also major milestones. In particular, it’s the start of graduation season, and a reminder that some of the kids in our lives are…not kids anymore! I recently saw this performance from JRR Jewish Star Kenneth Lyonswright of his new song, “Blessing,” at one of our JRR Chicago Sings concerts, and I thought it was beautiful AND perfect for this time of year. The song features the Hebrew for the Priestly Blessing that parents offer weekly to their children, and that clergy offer to those taking a BIG new step in their lives. Mazal to all the grads and people embarking on big adventures out there!
