Itzik Gottesman also recorded Arye-Leibush Laish in 1988, and published his recording on the Yiddish Song of the Week blog, together with additional biographical information as well as comments and links about how the melody he collected (heard in the song "Oy mame, dultshe mame") was used as a revived ritual at Klezkanada.

I. Gottesman also wrote: "For Ruth Rubin he gave his wife's last name, Simele Shnayder, I don't know why. Ruth Levin informed me that Ayre Laish died in 2014."
