New music: Laura Metzing – Instrument of Worship

Shalom fine Messianic music fans, 

I’ve just now added some fresh, beautiful music for the Lord to the station: 

Laura Metzing – Instrument of Worship

I met Laura at Proclaim Messianic Music Festival in June . (p.s. I had one of the most joy-in-the-Lord experiences at Proclaim. You should come next year.) Laura sang her songs with such passion for the Lord, I knew I had to get her album on the station.

I spoke with Laura about it and she was gave us the thumbs up to play her music on Chavah.

So, friends, give it a listen! She’s got a powerful vocal and a heart of worship that comes through in each of her songs. I know you fine listeners will love it.

Just added to Chavah: Sandra Sheskin Brotman – Shema Israel

Fine Chavah friends, 

A special treat for you dear listeners. We’ve added to the station a classic Messianic Jewish album from one of the first female Messianic Jewish musicians, the late Sandra Sheskin Brotman of loving memory.

Sandra Sheskin Brotman – Shema Israel שמע ישראל

Sandra passed away about a month ago , leaving behind a great legacy of her preaching the Gospel and singing her Scripture songs to many thousands.

This album features original songs, beautiful takes on Jewish classics like Jerusalem of Gold, as well as covers of Messianic music classics like The Sacrifice Lamb and Baruch Hashem.

Sandra introduces her album like this,

The title, Shema Israel (Hear O Israel), is based on Deuteronomy 6:4-9 in the Jewish Bible. This familiar portion, The Shema, was given by God to Moses in Hebrew 3,5000 years ago. As the core of the Jewish faith, it is recited worldwide at most Jewish worship services and reminds us that we should love God with all our heart, soul and strength. Enjoy the contemporry version of The Shema sung in Hebrew along with Hineh Mah Tov.

It is my sincere prayer that something you experience in hearing this recording will persuade you to open you heart and life to God’s redeeming love. The Lord has ministered to thousands in the many countries where Hear O Israel is distributed. I have received letters and reports from those who experienced God’s physical healing, lifing of depression, deliverance from suicide and fear upon hearing theses songs. Parents have gratefully expressed how their children’s temperatments dramatically changed while dancing to hte music and listening to hte lyrics. Others testify to experiencing forgiveness, joy and a more personal relationship with God by asking Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) into their hearts and lives in response to the message of these songs. The last song, He Arose!, highlights Yeshua’s triumphant resurrection from the dead!

The Union of Messianic Jewish Congregations eulogizes her recent passing:

Sandra Sheskin Brotman entered into her eternal rest peacefully surrounded by family and friends on Monday, May 29, 2023. Sandra, a matriarch in the Messianic Jewish movement, was full of life, passionate about her faith, and rarely missed an opportunity to share the love of Yeshua with others.

Sandra was one of the first female Messianic Jewish recording artists and loved singing about Zion and her Messiah. She was active for many years Sandra in Ahavat Yeshua, a Messianic Jewish congregation in Washington, D.C. Throughout her life she tirelessly served the Lord, using her gifts as a singer, songwriter, Bible teacher, pro-life advocate, and writer. She wrote articles on Messianic Jewish topics and was interviewed numerous times on local and national TV and radio. She was truly a pioneer of the Messianic Jewish Movement.

A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held July 1 at Ahavat Yeshua, and also made available online. For details visit Sandra Brotman Memorial .

While Sandra has passed away, you can donate to the charities she supported throughout her life . 

Enjoy, and shabbat shalom to you all.

New music: Marty Goetz – Singin’ in the Reign (Scrapbook)

Shalom friends,

New Messianic music on the station, something quite special for you:

Marty Goetz – Singin’ in the Reign (Scrapbook)

This album contains sweet and intimate worship by Marty Goetz over the decades with many lesser-known tunes, some never-before released songs, and even recordings from when Marty was a child, and more. Beautiful and precious!

Marty explains,

The coronavirus pandemic of 2020 afforded us something we would not have otherwise had: LOTS of time at home. With the help of our daughter, Misha, we were able to go through boxes of video tapes, cassettes and ‘reel to reel’ recordings that had been sitting in our storage room for decades. The result is this album of songs; some never released, others in their original piano/vocal form and selections from our very first cassette recording, ‘More Than The Watchman’. It is a ‘scrapbook’ of musical memories we hope you will enjoy. Jenny and I thank God that He ‘found’ us so many years ago. Who knew then these songs would turn into forty years of ‘Singin’ in the Reign.’

Love and Shalom in Yeshua, Jesus

Marty & Jenny

Enjoy this beautiful album reviewing Marty’s dedication of decades as a singer, songwriter, and servant to the King, blessing so many in the process – including me. ❤️

Shabbat shalom fine Chavah fans!

New music: Elana Watson – Awake O Israel

Shalom dear Messianic music afficionados,

We’ve added more music to the station, this time a classic Messianic album:

Elana Watson – Awake O Israel

I’ve had a few songs from this classic album on the station, but just hadn’t got around to getting the whole album on. Now it is. 😊

Here’s a little bit about this classic Messianic album:

Awake O Israel is a recording of unprecedented combinations of Middle Eastern, Latin American, and Eastern European melodies and rhythms. Elana Watson is the daughter of renowned messianic artists Merv & Merla Watson. Coming from a musical family, Watson grew up onstage performing in theatres, cathedrals, churches, synagogues, and festivals, and has been on television and radio in over 30 countries. This recording consists of many crossovers along with Watson’s original sound. It is indeed a new sound full of surprise and energy!

Enjoy this golden oldie for King Messiah, fine friends in Yeshua. 😎

New music: Miqedem – Eshkona

Shalom excellent and joyful Chavah listeners,

New music now playing on Chavah Messianic Radio. Check it out!

Miqedem – Eshkona (I Will Rest)

Miqedem has quickly become one of the most beloved bands in the Messianic Jewish genre. From Tel Aviv Yaffo, this group composed of talented Israeli musicians Jamie Hilsden, Shai Sol, Yaron Cherniak and friends have come together for their 3rd album, Eshkona (I Will Rest)

The name Eshkona אֶשְׁכֹּנָה comes from Psalm 55, “Oh that I had wings like a dove, I would fly away and be at rest (eshkona אשכנה)

Here’s what the group has to say about this new album:

Miqedem’s third album, Eshkona (“I will rest”) is the band’s most collaborative and instrumentally diverse album to date, and includes guest appearances from many of the band’s friends in the Israeli world-music scene.

Initial pre-production took place from January to March 2021, at the hight of the pandemic and Israel’s tight movement restrictions. It was during this time that the three songwriters of the band moved into a friend’s attic in Tel Aviv’s Neve Tzedek neighborhood, where they set up a makeshift recording studio and began fleshing out ideas and recording demo tracks by themselves.

Due to the fact that not all of the band was living in Israel at the time, production was halted in March ’21, but in early ’22, when the band was able to re-unite in Israel on a permanent basis, production resumed. This time the band enlisted the help of producer/engineer Shahar Kaufman, whose studio, Onyx Studio, is located in the idyllic Upper Galillee region of Israel, in the small town of Rosh Pina.

In a statement from the band, Shai Sol wrote, “we knew we wanted to work with Shahar. For one, I had just finished spending several weeks in Rosh Pina, and I had the pleasure of working with Shahar – and we totally hit it off. I knew that he’d understand exactly what Miqedem was trying to do, and his experience in recording ethnic instruments and producing world-music artists was just what we needed. Plus, his studio is in one of the most beautiful places in Israel. When you work there, you wake up every morning with a view of snowy Mt. Hermon. And the studio even has a stream running through its front yard. It was the kind of change we needed after spending almost three months in a Tel Aviv attic during lockdown!”

The album’s title (“Eshkona”, meaning “I will rest”) takes its name from the fourth track, Ever Kayona (Wings of a Dove), that says, “Oh that I had the wings of a dove, I would fly away and be at rest”, a sentiment reflected throughout the album, both lyrically and musically.

In a further statement, Jamie Hilsden added, “Our previous albums have a lot of pretty up-tempo songs, but when we listened back to the record we noticed that we wrote a much more restful album than in the past, and I think that’s not a coincidence. It was written during such an awful and stressful – and unstable – period of time. So I’m not surprised that we were writing such calm music. We were probably trying to soothe ourselves! Same goes for the lyrics we were drawn to. There are a lot of images of rest on the album.”

The album’s artwork was drawn and designed by Tel Aviv illustrator, Noa Goffer, and references the many images related to plant-life found on the record.

Regarding the artwork, Yaron Cherniak states, “We got to Noa Goffer through the recommendation of our mutual friend Sharona Cantor, who we enlisted as our art director. We had seen Noa’s work around before, but as soon as we all sat down to choose an artist, we all felt that Noa was right for this record. She has such a unique way of depicting nature, plant-life and the animal kingdom in almost child-like drawing in her art. We knew that if we gave her the record, and she heard all the imagery we ended up using on it, she’d know just what to do.””

The album was mixed by Dan Zeitune, and Mastered by Aran Lavi.

Friends, I know you’ll love this beautiful new album for King Messiah. You can support Miqedem by buying this album here for name-your-price . You can also donate to Messiah’s Music Fund, which we distribute to all the artists on Chavah including Miqedem.

Thanks friends! Enjoy!
