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 Truth Firestarter Good News to Mission Control Scripturesonics Vol. 1: The Good News Aviad’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
Just a sampling from the hundreds of Messiah's musicians on Chavah Messianic Radio Shalom fine Chavah listeners, We're launching a new feature on Chavah Messianic Radio : Messiah's Music Fund, where each month we will donate money to the Messianic artists on Chavah. That money will come from myself (Judah)...and from you, I hope! 😊 Friends, will you donate to Messiah's Music Fund ? Chavah has always been 100% free, purely a labor of love. I'm glad to amplify Messiah's musicians to a broader audience. I consider it a service to the Lord. And I hope it's a service to you, friends. I hope Chavah has blessed you and your household with the holy music of King Messiah. But, I want to do more: I want to financially help to the artists on Chavah . It's one thing to amplify Messiah's music to this generation. It's another to support the artists who have graciously and freely given their music to bless you without charge. What a joyful blessing it will
