Eli Cohen Reviews Beri Weber – Shabbos Farbreng

Eli Cohen Reviews Beri Weber – Shabbos Farbreng

                      Beri Weber has given the oilom a gift – an album with Shabbos songs. But not just an album of tunes that relate to Shabbos, but rather from the first moment on he gives us a glimpse of how he “lives” Shabbos – how [&hellip

OutOfTowner Reviews Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz – Shir

OutOfTowner Reviews  Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz – Shir

One of the most intriguing albums that came out recently is the Shir “Shmitah benefit” album released by Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz. A lot has been written about the generous philanthropy of the Rechnitz family and specifically Shlomo Yehuda, so I am not even going to try to tackle that aspect of the album. The Rechnitz [&hellip

This year’s parade welcomes back everyone’s favorite uncle, Uncle Moishy, who is thrilled to once again join the performances, having been a part of The Great Parade initiative for some years now.

Best of Mordechai Ben David – The Missing 2

Best of Mordechai Ben David – The Missing 2

A little while ago (okay, a LONG while ago), I wrote this article, called “The Best of MBD – A Career Retrospective”. In order to write that article, I acquired every MBD album – well, except two: MBD’s first album, with the bulky name “Mordechai Ben David Werdyger Sings Original Chassidic Niggunim”, and “MBD Live”. [&hellip

OutOfTowner’s Perspective of HASC 26

OutOfTowner’s Perspective of HASC 26

              As many of you who have read my reviews in the past would know, I am a huge fan of the HASC concerts and wait every year for the CD and DVD to be released. I got hooked as a preteen and the excitement of hearing and seeing [&hellip

The Best of Mordechai Ben David – a Career Retrospective, Pt. 1

The Best of Mordechai Ben David – a Career Retrospective, Pt. 1

  Talk about an article that has been a long time in the making! The first version, actually written up for the early stages of this website, was lost after a site crash. A second version was lost after a personal computer crash. And in the meantime, MBD announced Kissifim would be his final album [&hellip

MBD: “I’m Back in the Studio”

MBD: “I’m Back in the Studio”

This coming Motzei Shabbos MBD will be on Menachem Toker’s radio show and will announce that he is back in the studio. This past week a member of the Shira Choir also posted this photo on facebook with the caption “Now by mbd with the shira guys wow its coming out good!!!”. We were told that Kissufim [&hellip

Out Of Towner Reviews Big Time – Alter Heim

Out Of Towner Reviews Big Time – Alter Heim

How often can an album be released featuring an all star lineup of Mordechai Ben David, Lipa Schmelczer, Dovid Gabay, Shloime Gertner, the Mezamrim Choir, Chilik Frank and the Freilach Orchestra, produced by Sheya Mendlowitz, and arranged by Suki Berry,  and seemingly not even register a blip on the Jewish Music scene? Then again, with [&hellip

Hislahavus’ Review of MBD’s Kissufim

Hislahavus’ Review of MBD’s Kissufim

  So this is it. The “King of Jewish Music” and his last album – Kissufim. I don’t think any of us expected it to be like this – not the singer of Moshiach, Maaminim and Just One Shabbos! – but in the end, it’s up to the artist to go where he wants. And [&hellip

Finally … MBD! An All New Album

Video: 20th Anniversary of fall of FSU Celebrated at JLI Retreat with MBD

After the fall of the Former Soviet Union in 1991, Mordechai ben David reignited Jewish spirit with an eight city concert tour, beginning in Moscow with a concert in the halls of the Kremlin. This historic event was celebrated this year as Mordechai Ben David entertained a crowd of 800 at JLI’s National Jewish Retreat. [&hellip

The Perfect Album?

The Perfect Album?

What makes an album great? Obviously, there are many aspects, but I did a quick experiment. I pulled up iTunes and sorted my 350+ albums by highest rated. As I had thought, I don’t have that many albums that I give a full five stars to – after all, I’m a bit of a critic. [&hellip

Hislahavus’ Review of the HASC Collection – 1-7

Hislahavus’ Review of the HASC Collection – 1-7

It is worthwhile to flashback sometimes. When you haven’t listened to something for many years, you may be missing something that you hadn’t noticed. So it’s flashback time: I do not think it would be an exaggeration to say that HASC’s A Time for Music series of concerts changed Jewish music forever. Over the years, [&hellip
