Daniel Halfon


This melody for Pitchu Li Sha’arei Tsedek (verses 19-24 of Psalm 118) is from the Sephardi community of Gibraltar. Despite being set in a minor key, it is sung on a variety of festive occasions, including the Hallel at the Pesach Seder and on Shabou’ot morning. It is also a mainstay of the wedding repertoire on the rock.
