with Chavah: Persona shut-off and the new Chavah v3

Shalom friends!

Right now when you sign-in to Chavah, you’ll get a scary red message about “ shutting down”:



Some of you have asked what this means. Well, good news and bad news:

  • The good news is: Chavah is doing great, and certainly not shutting down, of course! SmileChavah is more popular than ever, with several thousand listeners and a growing library of music for Messiah.
  • The bad news is: the sign-in technology we’re using, Mozilla Persona, is shutting down.

What this means is, you won’t be able to sign-in to Chavah after Novermber 30th unless we release the new version of Chavah. The new version of Chavah, Chavah v3, doesn’t use Persona, and will let you sign in with your existing email address.

We’re working super hard every day trying to get Chavah v3 done before the November 30th deadline!

Bottom line:

  • Chavah will continue working no matter what. Smile
  • Signing-in to Chavah will stop working on November 30th. Crying face
  • The next version of Chavah, v3, will let you sign in using your email address, without using the dying Persona service. Hot smile
  • We’re scrambling to finish Chavah v3 before November 30th, so that you’ll still be able to sign in.Party smile

Please pray for us in getting Chavah v3 done! We think it’s an awesome version with some super cool new features and social interactions that amplify Messiah and his music.

We’ll have another post here in a week or two to get an update on the status of the new Chavah v3 as the November 30th deadline approaches.


  1. With this new version, will our existing music saves going to remain or will we lose them?

    1. Your existing music saves will remain.

      Just sign in with the same email address you're using now.

  2. I just ran across this site tonight....WHAT A HUGE BLESSING! I would like to suggest....ok, I am an alumni of Last Days Ministries...fair enough to say there is some bias.... but still, I would love to see Keith Green included in your selection. He was Jewish by ancestry, and most definitely a "Messianic Jew".....

    1. I love Keith Green. I'd be delighted to add his music to the station, provided his wife (and any copyright holders) permit.

  3. Here listening on Dec.1 - am I listening to "Chavah 3"? Do I need to sign out and then sign back in, or is all well as it is (it sounds as great as ever, BTW)?

    1. Chavah 3 looks very different than Chavah 2. :-) You'll know it when you see it, but it is published live as of late last night. :-)

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.)

New music: Melody Joy - Awakening

Shalom Messianic music fans,I’m overjoyed to annouce new music on the station just in time for shabbat:Melody Joy – AwakeningMelody’s first album, The Beginning, has already received a great reception on Chavah, with powerful songs like New Jerusalem and beautiful takes on old hymns like Great is Thy Faithfulness.I think this new album is going to be a blessing to you fine Chavah listeners. Songs of encouragement like You Are Here, and stirring ensembles of worship like After All, all set to Melody’s powerful, passionate vocals. Great music for the Lord! What a blessing.I’m thankful to Melody Joy herself for contributing this new album, her hard work and fruit of her labors, to Chavah Messianic Radio. Thank you, Melody! Messianic music fans, if you enjoy the album, I’d encourage you to buy it over at! Your buying the album supports Messiah’s musicians – without that, no music gets made. Thanks for your support, fine Chavah fans.p.s. Check out her singing a cover …
