I got this beautiful video from NY Nana so I just had to post it. This is the "what's left of overnight" thread.
This video is a mix of the Yerushalayim song off the upcoming album and the side story of an American boy visiting Israel with his zeide. The grandson in the video is the "popular" Cantor Simcha Levinstein who sings in the choir. Another farmiliar voice on the album is that of Shimon Bell (Sheves Achim) who just released a album with his brother. The song is composed by Shneur Steinberg who also composed "Lemaranan" on the first album.
The album is called Arayvim Zeh L'zeh. Composed for the most part by Nachman Seltzer. There is a song by Shaya Cohn, who wrote the lyrics for Nisht Oif Shabbos Geret for Lipa, and and another song by Elimelech Blumstien, who is a major up and coming composer. Arrangements by Leib Yaacov Rigler and Jeff Hurvitch. 11 new songs and one surprise medley. Featuring Soloists; Moshe Bell from Sheves Achim-Agil and Simcha Levinstein- the Mini Helfgot, who just released his debut chazonus album.
I am an Orthodox Jew - some would even call me 'ultra-Orthodox.' Born in Boston, I was a corporate and securities attorney in New York City for seven years before making aliya to Israel in 1991 (I don't look it but I really am that old :-). I have been happily married to the same woman for thirty-five years, and we have eight children (bli ayin hara) ranging in age from 12 to 33 years and eight grandchildren. Three of our children are married and a fourth is engaged! Before I started blogging I was a heavy contributor on a number of email lists and ran an email list called the Matzav from 2000-2004.
