A Chinese Jew's Heartfelt Passover Song v'hi sh'amda

A unique video captures the heartfelt rendition of a classic Passover song in the ancient Chinese Jewish community of Kaifeng, located on the banks of the Yellow River.

Ram, a Chinese Jew and cantor of the Kaifeng community, sings "Vehi She'amda," a song recounting G-d's protection of the Jewish people in every generation. The song is part of the Passover Haggadah text, which recounts the miraculous Exodus in which G-d brought the Jews out of Egyptian slavery to the land of Israel.
