Jewish Song of the Week: ‘Bashanah Haba’ah’ performed by Josh Nelson

I’ve shared other covers of the Israeli folk song “Bashanah Haba’ah” for Song of the Week before — it’s a popular song at Rosh Hashanah and at Passover, reminding us to be optimistic about the year ahead. Well, 2023 is ahead of us and I’m feeling hopeful and I hope y’all are too! So here’s an absolutely ROCKIN’ version from my dear friend Josh Nelson. Happy New Year!
