From: yjuskowicz


Subject: [NYCJewishMusic] Jewish Music for Chanukah

. . .

Here are some of
the events in the NY/NJ area.

PLEASE NOTE: Shivi Keller, the extraordinary musician, singer and
songwriter from Israel will be here with his band for the next 10 days
and is available on some of the days for gigs. For those of you who
are unfamiliar with Shivi, his music is some of the most beautiful and
spiritual I have ever heard in my life, and many people I know agree
with me. He was wounded seriously in two separate terrorist attacks
and sings from his heart as a way to express his thanks to G-d for
healing. He is here with his band Ein Od Milvado. For booking info
contact Yakov cohen to book him 347-743-3648. Here is a link of a video of
Shivi singing:

Chanukah is such a beautiful holiday with rich spiritual significance.
What is the deeper meaning behind the story of the Jews searching the
Holy Temple and finding a small jug of oil that was untouched by
defiled hands and still had the seal of the High Priest? Harav Kook
writes that inside every Jew is a small jug of oil that sealed and
pure, untouched by the outside world. On Chanukah we have the
opportunity to reach inside ourselves and find that special jug and
ignite it. It too can burn for 8 days just like the miracle of
Chanukah. Wishing everyone a Happy Chanukah,

Best Wishes, Yisroel
