Hello Everybody 11th February 2021
As someone who was born and grew up in Hungary, please allow me to express how I feel about the Hungarian song: you mention
I visited Nagykallo the Burial place of the Kaleve Tzaddik more than once --
In my perception, it is indeed could be the
" Szol a kakas mar majd meg virrad mar.
Kek erdoben zold mezoben setal egy madar, de micsoda madar etc.
Amit a Jo Teremto megigert/ whatever our almighty G promised will be fulfilled
I wonder, if I may mention: The symbolical meaning of the song -of the
Szol a kakas mar--is extremely powerful.--for all of us who unwaveringly believe in the Torah
" In my understanding, the sky opens up for a split second sometimes at dawn --the 'special cock' crocks in that very powerful moment when our wishes could reach? be listened to ? be granted?
Szol a kakas mar was/is a song, from generations to generations :
in a way --from the cradle to the grave--and eternal song--
To my knowledge it is actually on you tube --the English translation varies a bit.
This is the song, which was sung by the present Kaleve Rabbi on the riverbank of the River Danube--Budapest
Remembering the Holocaust,
when the our Jewish brethren were ordered to take their shoes off ---and shut-- falling into the river Danube
There were /are some other famous Hungarian songs : like the Yiddishe Mumma etc.
Best wishes to Everybody at Jewish Gen
