About the CD
VOICES FOR ISRAEL: CHAZAK AMENU is the most ambitious Jewish Music project ever undertaken, bringing together over 50 Jewish Music stars from throughout the broader Jewish community, joining their voices for Israel.
The objective of VOICES FOR ISRAEL is to express support for, and solidarity with, the people of Israel during these trying times, and to promote a global sense of Jewish unity and community.
And there is no more inspiring way to convey our innermost hopes, feelings, and prayers than through song.
VOICES FOR ISRAEL is a historic 2-CD compilation of 35 songs, in English and Hebrew, relating to Israel, Jewish unity and the enduring hope for peace. The CD set also includes an uplifting music video - put the CD in your computer and watch! - in addition to an informative 20-page booklet packed with full color photos of Israel. Profits benefit victims of terror in Israel.
The VOICES FOR ISRAEL title track is the brand new all-star solidarity song, Chazak Amenu: We Stand As One. Recorded by dozens of todays popular Jewish Music artists (see list on Artists page), this rousing English/Hebrew anthem and the accompanying music video remind us why we love and support Israel.
The performers have all donated their time and their songs, an outstanding mix of classic favorites, as well as debut tracks that are sure to become classics. All of the songs center on the themes of Voices For Israel - solidarity, unity, hope and peace.
One highlight is Shir Lismoach (Malkis Song), written by 15-year-old Malki Roth, just months before she was killed in the Jerusalem Sbarro restaurant terrorist bombing. The song was recorded specifically for Voices For Israel by a duo of American superstar Yehuda! and Yishai Lapidot, Malkis favorite Jewish star in Israel.
VOICES FOR ISRAEL was conceived and produced by Jordan B. Gorfinkel, a producer of pioneering Jewish vocal groups such as Beatachon and Kol Zimra. Yehuda!, the internationally renowned Jewish Music recording artist, served as Musical Director, overseeing the vocal and musical arrangements as well as the overall technical production.
The VOICES FOR ISRAEL 2-CD set is on sale at Judaica stores everywhere. Domestic retail distribution is being provided by Sameach Music at www.jewishjukebox.com.
Voices For Israel is also partnering with Jewish schools, youth groups, synagogues, camps and other organizations to sell CDs in their communities as a joint fundraiser.
