The album ‘Sim Shalom’ is a collection of songs of prayer and blessing that Myrna Rabinowitz composed and recorded on 3 different albums: ‘Or Shalom – Songs of the Heart’ and ‘And You Shall Teach Your Children’ with Shir Hadash (Hanna Tiferet Siegel and Harley Rothstein) and the Mimkomcha was recorded on Hanna Tiferet’s first solo album ‘The Healing Circle’ with accompanying vocals by Nomi Fenson. These songs of prayer and blessing were recorded in the 1980’s during the early beginnings of the Or Shalom Synagogue in Vancouver, Canada and the Jewish Renewal movement. The seeds of creating original music for prayer were planted by Rabbis Daniel Siegel and Hanna Tiferet Siegel who started the Or Shalom community. ‘Sim Shalom’ was the first song of prayer Myrna composed and was thus chosen as the title of this album.
