May they continue to be blessed in their work; may they continue to lift the world up in praise of the One, our Creator –
its a great way to be mekarev yidden, maybe you dont think your kids in oholei torah should listen to it, thats your choice, most shluchim have mixed seating at their events, maybe its not for your tomim but its definetly bringing yidden closer to hashem
As for the musicians, Baruch Hashem there are songs about Hashem and about the righteousness of Judaism and Torah. Who cares if someone raps it or sings in in the style of 16th century Europe? Since when does the Torah say that shirim must only be sung the way they did it in old days? There is no such provision.
These songs are not "secular" and if you all realized that the lyrics bring the younger generation closer to Hashem and Torah, then you would be whole-heartedly supporting this. In this day in age with all the inter-marriage, shouldn't we be celebrating young people who love Hashem and Torah? Shouldn't we be celebrating a medium that is more likely to garner attention of young Jews?
It's the warmth and love and sincerity of the musicians above that are bringing hope to the younger generation.
Amen to the music they are creating!
Their lyrics are based on Torah thoughts and all about Unity, Respect and Love for Hashem and your fellow people.
May their acts bring about further acts of goodness and kindness and the speedy coming of Moshiach!
