The Rabbi Upstairs on Soundcloud.
A young Rabbi lives in the apartment above mine. He paces the floor day and night. He always wears shoes. If I’m working from home and I hit a rough spot while he’s walking, I get up from my computer and walk with him. Why not?
Sometimes, I think, he has students come in. They sing and chant their lessons, or maybe he sings to teach them. I stand on my couch with my recorder trying to capture his voice and his footsteps. It never comes out clear enough, though.
One day I crouched in my stairwell and captured this piece of a lesson he was teaching. You have to turn your volume all the way up to hear him.
