"Nisbia" by Choni Goldman [Official Music Video]

Choni Goldman, winner of the title Jewish Star of 2012 is, thankfully still active in the Jewish music world. The following video was filmed in Brighton Beach, and carries a message of hope in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Like New Jersey's famous Stronger than the Storm" video, songs about recovery from natural disasters have a metaphoric resonance for people struggling to recover from their own personal trials that play out on a smaller stage.

 I first heard Bob Dylan's "Hard Rain's Gonna Fall" when I was about 12 years old. Late into my 50's, it has a far deeper resonance
