Mindy the Jewish Music Maven – the founder of the Jewish Music Yahoo group. My picks: Best Album:  Mordechai Ben David – Kulam Ahuvim.

Best Album: Avodas Tzedaka –  Shloime Kaufman. For me, Shloime had the best mix of singers on his album. I get tired of hearing the same voice after a while, which is why I’m partial to groups over solo artists. He had Baruch Levine, Abie, A.K.A. Pella & Pruz. I can’t get enough of Kol [&hellip
