This was the niggun I grew up with in Sweden
The German jews had many other tunes too.
This tune was used by those who were not musically inclined. The ones that were gifted by hashem with a good voice and ear many others
I think this Nigun was the most widespread and well known.
Hearing this brought a tear to my eyes. Frank
The first but not the only one I was aquainted with – also in Sweden. Still often sung here.
This is the moving I grew up with in Washington Heights in the late. 1950s and sixties. My parents came from Germany in 1937. I left the heights in 1966 to go to grad school. Lived in Binghamton, College Park, Lansing, and eventually settled in Southfield, Mich. I’ve been exposed to at least a dozen other Melodie’s. I finally
found my original nigun while browsing the internet,
C est le nigoun d,Alsace et de lorraine
Avec les 2 pessoukim ajoites au psaume tequilas….

STILL SINGING THIS NIGGUN IN THE JESSELSON/HEYUM FAMILY.
comme ca on chanatait a metz aussi
I have never heard this niggun – it does sound very German though! It feels like it fits with much of the rest of the bentching which came from a German drinking song!
