Jewish songs can be inspiring. And this one DEFINITELY is! Ari Goldwag is a famous Jewish singer who took the idea of overcoming challenges with a positive attitude and put it into the most upbeat song you will ever hear!

Dancing in the Rain

There is a famous quote that goes as follows, “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…it’s about learning to dance in the rain” (Vivian Greene).

This song, which in Hebrew is called “Lo Nafsik Lirkod,” is all about that! Lo Nafsik Lirkod means “we will never stop dancing.” Four people with different challenges learn how to dance through their challenges. They all have these “magical” shoes that help them “dance in the rain.” The four people are all different ages – a child, a young adult, an adult, and an older person. At any age and stage of life, there will be challenges. The goal is to be able to dance through the challenges while maintaining a positive attitude. At the end, the four lives merge together and meet at the Western Wall. It’s a beautiful song, with a beautiful video, and also a beautiful lesson.

Jewish Values in Jewish Songs

Jewish songs give over Jewish values, and this song gives over the message about having a positive attitude to overcome challenges. That is certainly a Jewish value.

Translated lyrics

This is a song that everyone knows

That everyone is listening to

It turns all the bad into good

It gives us the strength

To continue to rejoice and dance

We will never stop dancing

Pick up your feet

The sky’s still the limit

We will never stop dancing

Come whatever comes

We will never stop dancing

This is a song that has the beat

It doesn’t have any sadness

This is a tune that sings, ‘It is good to give thanks’

Let’s make a L’chaim together

And dance together arm in arm
