    This Sefer is published on the occasion of my maternal grandfather’s [יוסף חיים אלתר בן ניסל מאיר ע"ה] first

    Yartzeit, עליו השלום. May it be a source of eternal merit for him and my grandmother, as well as for my paternal grandparents and my wife’s grandparents.

    Rabbi Ze’ev Kraines

    בס'ד

    טז שבט תשע"ח

    My dear son R’ Shmuel Ben-tzion נ"י has worked with great devotion to produce this magnificent commentary

    on Perek Shira in memory of his grandparents and the grandparents of his wife Rivka 'תח. It is being published

    to mark the first yahrtzeit of my father-in-law, Mr. Julius Chapman יוסף חיים אלטר בן ניסל מאיר זצ"ל

    One can see the great effort that has gone into the clarification of every nuance of metaphor and allusion, as

    well as the perceptive guidance in how to “live the song” in our daily lives.

    These insights have been carefully and faithfully sourced from classic and contemporary commentaries on the

    work and have been interpreted with precision and creativity. The song of Creation rises from its pages,

    inspiring all who will take its messages to heart.

    May the publication of this sefer be a source of zechus for the neshamos of all of your grandparents and also

    bring berachah to you and Rivkah as you raise your precious children in the derech HaTorah.

    With Love and Pride,

    Rabbi Ze’ev Kraines Ohr Somayach Sandton
