Howdy Friends! Got snow? We’ve got palm trees at the moment. Our welcome mat is out-warmth available: inside and out.
Daveed Levy has put out a wonderful new album “Shirei Daveed.” Our friend, singer Darren Glick who is currently in Israel offering chizuk, alerted us to it first. Famed performer Matisyahu is also in Israel. He has remixed “Jerusalem” with Thank you Hashem Nation on board. Our singers perform service in their own way. Each of us do, actually. We’re all on the front lines, as we use our unique talents in order to serve.
New Jersey’s own Chaim Kiss’ “Chamol” is terrific. He too has been singing for the soldiers. The man is like a singing chesed machine worldwide, photo-ops & all. Tali Yess has reimagined “A young girl named Maria”, composed by his father Moshe Yess, in honor of his yartzeit. His neshama should have an Aliyah. I have never witnessed such beautiful & consistent kavod to parents.
Our son Joey Newcomb has just released “One Note Niggun.” Check it out for something different. The power of one indeed. Shlomo Gleyzer’s debut album “Flying Colors” gets a thumbs up from D.J. Al & I. “Prayer for IDF” by Natanel Herstik is beautiful. We all pray for the IDF, day and night. Our holy heroes.
Coming out of Israel, in Hebrew, Daniel Admon’s released “Machboim.” Thank You Hashem Nation has also released “Song of Soldiers 2 Upmix”, with DJ Farbreng and 8th Day, a leibidik track. Speaking of 8th Day, Rav Moshe Weinberger spoke recently about the impact of music on him and the klal. He made particular mention of an older song, “Avraham,” which has been a favorite of my family for years. Check it out.
TYH Women & Girls division just released “Ani Maamin” by Devorah Schwartz. Binyomin Miller put out a song via a fundraiser, “Incomplet.” The metaphor was clever, I didn’t see it coming. I don’t know much about the yeshiva mentioned, though it reminds us once again that music has many purposes, gratefully.
Teaneck native Rabbi Efrem Goldberg, of BRS, Boca Raton, is back in Israel once again. The rabbis and their families go on missions of the heart in order to encourage, hug, provide for and comfort the families of the soldiers AND the families of the hostages, AND the families who have been displaced AND the decision-makers. It’s a huge task. We pray for success for all of them in their various endeavors. May we safely and swiftly share a world-wide barbecue, farbrengen, & victory dance sooner rather than later.
Wishing all a sweet & meaningful Tu B’Shvat of renewal, Chaplain-style. Thank you Hashem!
