Tum Balalaika - A Russian, Yiddish folk song cajoling the string Balalaika to play happier music. Dona, Dona - A touching parable concerning a mournful calf going to slaughter and the soaring bird flyer above it, the parallel being between the body and the spirit. Oz Der Rebbe Eli Melech - A humorous accounting of the Hassidic leader, Rabbi Eli Melech, and his disciples. Their devotion to him was so great that when he ate, they ate; he laughed, they laughed; he slept, they slept; etc.
