New music: Adat Meshichim Yehudim – Erev Shabbat Melodies, Jerusalem 1948

A very special treat for you that’s 76 years in the making:

Adat Yehudim Meshichim – Erev Shabbat Melodies, Jerusalem 1948

All but one of these melodies were composed in 1948 by the community Adat Meshichim Yehudim, the Congregation of Messianic Jews in Jerusalem, headed by Messianic pioneers Abram Poljak and Pauline Rose.

These special, original melodies were recently performed on the piano by Megan Wallace of Beth Immanuel. These fine folks gave us permission to play on Chavah for your holy pleasure. 

Enjoy this special treat to brighten your shabbat, fine Chavah fans!

Chavah 2.1 for iOS now available

I’m glad to report we’ve deployed a new version of Chavah app for iOS just this morning.

You might ask, “Didn’t you just deploy a new version of Chavah for iOS last month?”

Yes, we did , and then Apple promptly shipped a new version of iOS, 17.2.1, that broke Chavah .

Specifically, if Chavah was in the background, or if your phone screen was locked, Chavah wouldn’t play the next song. This was a bug introduced by Apple for all web-based audio apps like Chavah. We’ve reported the issue to Apple and do hope it’ll be fixed soon.

In the meantime, today we shipped a new version of Chavah that works around Apple’s bug.

So, if you have an iPhone and you listen to Chavah, grab the latest version of Chavah from the App Store. With it, you’ll be able to play songs regardless of whether Chavah is in the background.

Psalm 88, Why It’s OK to Experience Sadness

This post first appeared on Kineti and is authored by Judah Gabriel Himango, one of Tabernacle of David’s teachers. Psalm 88 is the hopeless despair psalm.  Unlike other psalms, there is no redemption or hope in its conclusion.  Christian scholar H.C. Leupold said of it, “The psalmist is as deeply in trouble when he has… Read more

New music: Sons of Korah – Man of Sorrows

Shalom dear Chavah listeners, and happy 2024 to you. 

We’ve added some fresh new music on the station that I’m certain you’ll love.

Sons of Korah – Man of Sorrows

The group describes this new album:

We find, in the Psalms, a deep joy that subsists in deep sorrow. The psalmist was always a man of joy because he was first a man of sorrows. He sowed in tears and reaped with joy (Psalm 126:5). Perhaps the most important thing for us today then, is not the pursuit of happiness, but the pursuit of sadness. The psalms invite us to share in the joy of God by first sharing his grief. It is a grief he bore most visibly in Jesus Christ who “was pierced for our transgressions and crushed for our iniquities.” In this age sorrow and joy belong together and it cannot be otherwise. If we anaesthetize the sorrow, we forfeit the joy.

Man of Sorrows – the latest Album from Sons of Korah, like all we have released before, is an invitation to venture into deeper places of divine sorrow and divine joy.

I’ve listened to all the tracks on this new album and found them positively stunning. There’s a great deal of sadness in these songs, especially the 3 songs from Psalm 88. If there is a single hopeless psalm, it is psalm 88. No joy, no redemption, just grief.

As the group mentioned, we cannot sweep away the sorrow, because sorrow juxtaposes the joy found in in the Scriptures. Just is God is a God of mercy and justice, the human experience is both joy and sadness. One extreme without the other is lacking. And for those of us who are weeping or grieving, these sorrowful psalms identify with us and grieve with us. It is no mistake that God allowed for them to become part of the Scriptures.

Friends, I know you’ll love this album — even the sorrowful psalms! Please consider supporting Sons of Korah as we do here on the station: download the Sons of Korah app  and purchase their music . You can also give to Messiah’s Music Fund , which is distributed each month to all artists on Chavah, including Sons of Korah.

Enjoy, friends!
