Popular religious singers Yonatan Razel and Yosef Harakdan ("Yosef the dancer") have combined forces in a new single, in which they sing a prayer written by former Sephardic Chief Rabbi Mordechai Eliyahu z''l, who passed in 2010.

After Rabbi Eliyahu passed, his family found in his pocket a prayer written by the rabbi, which he used to recite daily.

Razel, who won song of the year with his hit "Katonti" in the ACUM Israeli Music Awards ceremony for 2013, composed music for the prayer, which he sang with Yosef Harakdan, who was Rabbi Eliyahu's personal singer.

The new single, entitled "Tefilat Harav" ("The rabbi's prayer") can be heard here:
