Cantor Moshe Oysher – Venislach

Moishe Oysher: Music

Born in 1907 in Bessarabia, Imperial Russia (Moldova) and died in 1958 in New York. Although he may have come from a family of cantors going back six generations, he seems to have been drawn to the stage and popular entertainment from an early age. Oysher joined a Canadian travelling Yiddish theatrical troupe in 1921 and moved to New York City in 1923. By 1932 he had started his own company, entertaining in the USA and South America. After returning to the USA from Buenos Aires in 1934, he had difficulty finding work in New York’s Yiddish Theater. When he was offered the opportunity to sing for the High Holy Days at the First American-Rumanian Synagogue in NYC’s Lower East Side, he accepted the position and became a cantorial sensation!

Despite his great success as a cantor Moishe Oysher was ever the entertainer and became quite famous for his starring roles in three Yiddish films including, “The Cantor’s Son” (1936), “The Singing Blacksmith” (1938), and “Overture to Glory” (1940). He was also a successful recording artist.

Moishe Oysher was able to combine his passion for the Chazzanut with his love of performance, creating a crowd-pleasing style that thrilled audiences in synagogues and theaters. His recordings represent the world of our fathers and grandfathers who appreciated Oysher’s rich voice and fiery style.

Lipa Schmeltzer “Believe in a Miracle” Music Video

Once again, producer Danny Finkelman has teamed up with superstar Lipa Schmeltzer for a feel-good Chanukah video that captures the overwhelming joy and wonder of this most special of holidays.
Together with composer and executive producer Cecelia Margules, the trio presents Believe In A Miracle, an enthusiastic anthem to the Festival of Lights, as well as an exuberant reminder that even during difficult times, miracles are all around us on a daily basis.

“Like so many others, all three of us were adversely affected by Hurricane Sandy, and our brothers in Israel have also been living under very trying circumstances,” said Finkelman. “Yet despite the very serious difficulties that Jews worldwide have been facing in recent weeks, we found ourselves surrounded by miracles both large and small”

“As we celebrate Chanukah we want everyone to bask not only in the glow of the Chanukah candles but also in the knowledge that our mission here is to turn the darkness into light, and that is the biggest miracle of them all” added Ms. Margules.

A dazzling show of lights, combined with dancing and music that captures the magic of Chanukah, Believe In A Miracle also carries a timely message about strong family values as well as the importance of sharing the light of Judaism with everyone around us. Produced by Finkelman and Mauricio Arenas, and music by Ruli Ezrachi ‘Believe In A Miracle’ features cameo appearances by Yossi Piamenta, Yanky Katina and Choni Goldman.

Chanukah Style – A Gangnam Style Parody

2012 Hebrew School Program at The Shul of Bal Harbour.

In honor of the Jewish festival of Chanukah, the Hebrew School kids made this video to help spread the message of light and peace to the world.

Almost 2000 years ago the Syrian Empire had control of Jerusalem. They outlawed many Jewish observances and defiled the Holy Temple. A Jewish revolt, led by the Maccabees, was miraculously victorious over the much stronger Greek army. The miracle continued when, on returning to the Temple, they only found enough oil to light the Menorah (candelabra) for 1 night, and it lasted for 8!
To commemorate this miracle, Jews all over the world light the menorah for 8 nights every Chanukah.

Chanukah Donuts at Weiss Kosher Bakery

Brooklyn, NY – Using a secret recipe to make “heartburn-free” donuts, Weiss Homemade Kosher Bakery sells 30,000-40,000 donuts during the week of Chanukah. Many Brooklyn residents claim they’re the best in town — especially the caramel donuts, which owner Avrumi Weiss tells VIN News are made using caramel flavor produced on the premises.
This is a behind-the-scenes look at a Mr. Weiss making a batch of donuts, from the frying stage through the jelly filling and the chocolate coating.

All the tips you need to make bakery-quality donuts in your own kitchen

* The oil has to be very hot — but not boiling. If it’s boiling it will burn your donuts on the outside and leave the dough raw on the inside, while oil that’s not hot enough will get excessively absorbed into the donut. To check the oil temperature, dip in a wooden spoon. If a light bubble forms around it, your oil is at the right temperature. If large bubbles form, turn off the flame and wait for it to cool down or pour in some cold oil.

* The smaller the donuts the more relative surface area to absorb oil. In other words, the same amount of dough absorbs less oil if you make fewer, large donuts than a larger number of small donuts.

* A piece of potato or carrot cut lengthwise prevents the oil from burning and keeps it cleaner. When the potato or carrot is burned, it’s time to replace it with a new piece.

* Never add oil while donuts are frying.

* The secret to fluffy donuts without hollows is to adhere to the following guidelines:

1. Don’t cut short kneading time — 10 minutes in a mixer or 15 minutes by hand.

2. Let the dough rise for about an hour until it doubles in size. After forming the balls, let it rise again.

* Place your donuts on wax paper before frying. Flour will make the oil burn faster.

* To maintain their shape, use a stainless-steel spatula dipped in oil to pick up the dough balls.

* Add jelly while the donuts are still hot, but wait until they have cooled before sprinkling powdered sugar.

Israeli Missile Defense Progress: IDF successfully tests David’s Sling anti-missile system

Israel’s defence ministry has announced that it has successfully test its newest missile defence system. The “David’s Sling” system is designed to stop mid-range missiles and makes up the final leg of what Israel calls its “multilayer missile defence.”The ministry said the system detected and destroyed a test ballistic missile on Nov. 20, marking a “step forward” toward deployment next year. “David’s Sling,” also known as “Magic Wand,” is designed to intercept projectiles with ranges between 70 kilometres (45 miles) and 300 kilometres (180 miles). That would include countering the large arsenal of Hezbollah rockets in Lebanon and those of President Bashar Assad’s government in Syria. Israel has also deployed the Iron Dome system against short-range rockets from the Gaza Strip and the Arrow system for longer-range threats from Iran.
