You're invited to Proclaim Hebraic Music Fest

Image
Shalom Chavah fans, I know you all love Messianic music, so here’s something special: you’re invited to join me at Proclaim Hebraic Music Fest . Proclaim is four days of praise from Hebraic and Messianic musicians, a time of dancing, camping, friendships, campfires and singalongs, food and festivities for adults, youth, and little ones. Bring yourself, bring your whole family ! From June 17th-20th in beautiful Hornick, Iowa, we’ll celebrate the Lord together. Will you join me ? Folks, I’ve been attending Proclaim since it first began and I can attest, it’s been a giant blessing to me. I meet like-minded people, people who love to worship. I join singalongs at campfires. 😊 I’m built up. There’s something special about getting together with believers to worship. This year is even more special to me, as I’ve joined the Proclaim leadership team to help put on this event. My genuine prayer and hope is that this event brings glory to the Lord and builds up His people here in the US.

New music: Shilo Ben Hod - Shuv (Once Again) שוב

Image
Shalom friends, some fresh new Messianic music from Israel coming your way in the new year: Shilo Ben Hod - Shuv שוב Shuv (Once Again) is a new album produced in 2020, with a fresh, vibrant and modern sound. We blogged about some of Shilo’s new music videos a few months ago. Shilo gave us permission to play some of those songs on the station. And just today, Shilo reached out to us and gave us permission to play the full album on Chavah. 😎 Thank you, Shilo! Shuv is Shilo’s 2nd album; his previous Ad Hayom (Until Today) album has quickly become a favorite on Chavah. I suspect this new album will surpass even the first. Dear friends, just as Shilo freely gives his music for your spiritual edification, would you freely give your support? You can do that by donating to Messiah’s Music Fund , or by purchasing Shilo’s music . Thanks for supporting Messiah’s musicians, holy friends. God bless you all on this very fine eve of Shabbat.

New music: Paul Wilbur - Revive: Songs of Lamb and Israel's Hope

New music on Chavah! We’re now playing Paul Wilbur’s tribute album to Messianic music pioneers Lamb and Israel’s Hope : Paul Wilbur - Revive: Songs of Lamb and Israel’s Hope Paul Wilbur is easily the most popular musician on Chavah; receiving more plays every month than other artists. And this album is a beautiful tribute to Messianic music pioneers Lamb (Joel Chernoff & Levi Coghill) and Israel’s Hope (Paul Wilbur, Marc Chopinsky, Rene Bloch). Lamb and Israel’s Hope blazed the trail of the Messianic genre, paving the way for new and innovative praises from modern artists. This new album, Revive, offers fresh takes on old classics from Lamb and Israel’s Hope. I can remember listening to such music as a young boy; even today, Lamb is still my favorite! So, this album already holds a special place in my heart. I think it’ll do the same for you, friends. You can purchase this album over at WilburMinistries.com . You can also donate to Messiah’s Music Fund , which distributes fu

Why does Chavah ask me to donate?

Image
I received an email this week from a listener who suggested we stop asking for donations. “Dear friends Thank you for the beautiful songs …I think that is not right for a messianic radio station even You are asking 3 time,s a day for money. Please trust the Father of Abraham .Isaac and Jacob and don,t ask for money That,s not in the word He will give what you need Matt.6 Bless you.” That’s a fair question. After all, we’ve been running Chavah for 10 years and have never asked for donations until this year. Is it wrong to ask? Here’s my answer: We don’t ask for donations for Chavah. We only ask for donations to Messianic musicians. 100% of the donations go to the musicians; you can see for yourself in our artist distribution posts , which shows the exact dollar figures sent to individual artists. Since those musicians freely give their music for your enjoyment, I encourage listeners to do the same and give to Messiah’s Music Fund . Chavah doesn’t make any money; we’re a regist
