New music: Ben Tzion and Tali Waller – Psalms of Ascent

Shalom, Messianic music aficionados! Time for some new music, nu?

We’ve added to Chavah Messianic Radio a beautiful album by a Messianic couple living in the holy land:

Ben Tzion and Tali Waller – Psalms of Ascent

Ben Tzion and Tali describe the new album like this:

Shortly after our daughter Yael was born, we put Psalm 133 to music, and that was the beginning of this journey.

Over the next two years our journey brought us to Jerusalem for several months. There is a spiritual depth to Jerusalem that sets it apart from every other city in the world. As we walked its ancient streets and met its many faces, we began to understand why David’s heart was drawn to this city.

As our hearts grew closer to this holy place, these Psalms began to take on a more significant meaning. We continued working on the Psalms, at the same time realizing the importance of singing them in their original language.

“We began to understand why David’s heart was drawn to this city…”

The Psalms of Ascent (Psalms 120-134) are a special group of Psalms that are chanted every Sabbath among some Orthodox Jews. These songs were sung on the journey to Jerusalem for the three pilgrimage Festivals; Pesach, Shavuot, and Sukkot. In addition to being sung during the upward climb to Mt. Zion, these fifteen songs were traditionally sung on the fifteen steps that led into the Temple.

“These songs were sung on the journey to Jerusalem for the three pilgrimage Festivals…”

The songs begin in Psalm 120, where a peace-loving poet finds himself in a foreign land surrounded by war-loving neighbors. In the final song, Psalm 134, the traveler reaches the climax of his long journey and makes a call to bless HaShem in the Holy Temple of Jerusalem. The ascent to the courts of HaShem, though full of unforeseen trials, is a journey whose greatest reward is being in the awesome presence of the “Maker of heaven and earth”. We hope these Psalms of Ascent will truly cause your hearts to ascend as you worship the Holy One of Israel.

Blessed be His Name forever!
Let’s go up!

Aviad Cohen has passed away

Friends, I’m saddened to announce that Messianic musician Aviad Cohen has passed away yesterday, according to a Facebook post from his family. I knew Aviad for many years; he contributed his music to Chavah years ago, and before that, I knew him through my younger brother when the two of them met in person by chance in Jerusalem.Aviad produced 4 albums for God, including 3 techno albums and 1 Scripture reading album:Hooked on the TruthFirestarterGood News to Mission ControlScripturesonics Vol. 1: The Good NewsAviad’s last album, Scripturesonics, is a stirring Scripture reading album set to orchestral music. It’s my personal favorite.Aviad made big splashes when he, as a conservative Jew and rapper known as 50 Shekel, came to belief in Yeshua as Israel’s messiah. His public conversion made him a target for anti-missionaries and Jews who considered his belief in Yeshua to be a betrayal of Judaism.At the time of this writing, it's not clear how Aviad died. One friend says he passed a…

FAQ: How do I request a song?

Q. I don’t see the song request feature in Chavah. Where is it?A. It’s the ‘loudspeaker’ button at the top. Click that button, and then type the name of a song, artist, or album:Click the song you’re looking for, then click the ‘Request’ button:You’re done!Chavah will play the song instantly for you. Other people listening to the station will hear the song request as soon as their current song finishes.(p.s. Don’t like a song that someone requested? Thumb it down. Chavah will play something else for you, and the next time that song is requested, she’ll skip sending it to you.)(p.p.s. Looking for a song, but don’t quite remember the name? This is a great way to find it. Just type anything you do remember about the song, whether album, artist, or name (even if incomplete) and Chavah will do her best to find it for you.)
