Notes In this album, as in 'Songs from my Heart,' Dudu Fisher sings Yiddish songs which bring back memories of the Shtet'l. The album begins with the popular Mamele, a song about a mother, who after caring for her house and children, still has time for the lighting Sabbath candles.Zayde is a reminder to keep celebrating our Jewish heritage if we do not want it to be forgotten.
