about

According to the Jewish religious law, there is no talking between netilat yadayim (the blessing over washing hands) and hamotsi (blessing over bread). But that doesn’t mean silence, as singing without words is allowed. Many communities composed and were using their own traditional niggunim (plural of “niggun” or “nign”), wordless songs of spiritual devotion.

Nign Nikolayev is a traditional tune by the Hassidic community of Nikolayev in Ukraine, formerly Russian Empire. Later it was sung at farbrengenes (study gatherings) in the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s house in Brooklyn, New York.
