Broytale (The Bread), children’s song of Jewish folklore, in Yiddish

By on June 9, 2017. Posted in . Tagged as , , , , .

A beautiful children’s song performed in Yiddish by Bobe Adina.

The Bread – Song from the Jewish folklore, a father brings home just one loaf of bread that all must share.  Each child, and they are 8, can only have a little piece and the little one only the crust.  But accepting the division, they all get something and they do not need to fight.

This song is part of the album “Talzi”, Cri-Cri songs and traditional songs for children in Yiddish.
