Read the full story behind the song in this week’s edition of the Ami Magazine, written by Yossi Krausz.
Simcha Leiner is proud to present “Life’s better when your with your brother” a song celebrating the power that each and everyone of us has to stand up to a bully.
After reaching out to educators and Mechanchim around the world, Simcha embarked on the monumental task of crisscrossing the country recording over 1000 boys together to form a Chorus of Unity.
Each of the children were given a chance to discuss how bullying can affect their friend. A global anti-bullying initiative is currently being prepped for launch to further establish an ongoing awareness of the power of anti-bullying tactics.
This project would not be possible without the encouragement and support of my dear friend R’ Shua Ray.
Thank you to R’ Yosef Knopf for always pushing these great projects.
