Eyli, Eyli, probably the most frequently re-published Yiddish song, was written by Jacob Sandler (186?-1931) for a play staged in New York in 1896. It was first published in an arrangement by H. A. Russotto in 1907. The song was part of Al Jolson’s repertoire, and Mischa Elman made and recorded a transcription for violin and piano. During World War II, Eyli, Eyli was sung by Miriam Eisenstadt, known as the “nightingale of the Warsaw Ghetto”. More recently, the song was one of the first recorded by Jewish singers in Soviet Russia after the thaw. The text begins “Eyli, eyli, lomo azavtoni?” (My God, my God, why hast Thou forsaken me?).
