There is a (in my opinion) beautiful song by Avraham Fried called Aleh Katan. Does anyone know who composed this song?

Is it Yishai Lapitdot? It seems like he said his name here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FmHrk1ZdVsQ&feature=related

    Hmmm... Is this on topic? Does the song perhaps qualify as a piyyut? – Dave Mar 30 '12 at 18:33

    Well, he definitely says "Yishai Lapidot—aizeh shir niflah." Seems to imply Lapidot either composed or arranged the song. – Tzvi Mar 30 '12 at 18:43
  • @Dave, I don't know the song. If it's a Jewish-life or Jewish-learning song, then I think this question is on-topic. Otherwise (like judaism.stackexchange.com/questions/4994), not. – msh210 Mar 30 '12 at 19:58

    @Dave I always understood the song to be a parable for the Jew (or Jews). – Hod - Monica's Army Apr 1 '12 at 15:46

    @l' That comparison is just slightly flawed, I think. I think you know why, but I'll be perfectly clear: Avraham Fried is an observant Jew, who sings songs written and composed by observant Jews. All of those songs are either explicitly or implicitly related to Jewish life and/or learning. Comes along one song which is obviously metaphorical, with the most obvious interpretation being Jewish life-related. I think it's pretty safe to say that Alei Katan is no exception to the rest of his music. – Hod - Monica's Army Apr 1 '12 at 19:52

According to a website named www.hebrewsongs.com, both the music and lyrics were composed by Ishai Lapidot.

According to MostlyMusic.com, the song was arranged by Yuval Stupal.
