Shevet Achim-Chanuka

Dvorah Belenky


I invite to be among the first to hear 

BaYamim HaHem BaZman HaZeh

 by The Shevet Achim Ensemble and guest clarinetist Chilik Frank

I invite you to take part of in publishing and distribution of this disc

which is about to be released here in Jerusalem, Israel!

We've composed, arranged precious melodies, practiced, rehearsed and recorded, edited, mixed and mastered, all in order to bring this music with Jewish spirituality, depth and joy to the world.

Now in your zchus, this music will play!

Haven't you heard of us?

Here's your chance to hear and share!

I'm Dvorah, representing The Shevet Achim Ensemble.

We find music, especially harmony enthralling.

It is our dream 

to combine the purity of music with the power of Judaism,

creating a place of beauty and harmony for the Shechina.

The musicians on this album:

                                 clarinets- Our guest star Chilik Frank, Yehudit Shrager

                                 violins- R. Kantrowitz (Kohn), Miriam Zvi (Belenky)

                                 flute- Dvorah Belenky (Kohn)

                                 harp- Rivka Arki-Amar

                                 piano- Miriam Zlotnik

                                 cello- Ina-Esther Joost Ben-Sasson, 

                                            Sara Dagan (Goldberg)

                                 string bass- Menucha Yaffe (Fulda)

What's on the album?

Chanuka is the only Jewish festival which includes Rosh Chodesh,

so we've included melodies from Chanukah, Hallel and Rosh Chodesh.

You'll hear a variety of joyous, powerful, light and exciting music, 

based on a mixture of klezmer and classical styles, 

all coming directly from our heart and soul to yours.

Be part of gifting the world with this music and light. 

Really be part, by supporting and sharing this music. 

Are the Israeli prices confusing? Here's a currency changer.

Choose from the options on the side,

 and please tell your friends and family about this project.

Be part of the miracle long ago, now, in our time!

While music is our passion and not business, creating and publishing an album costs approximately 60,000 NIS, which is why we are selling it through Headstart's social distribution.

I was born in 1961 and learned to play the flute from an early age. As small children my sister and I played music together, so we've actually been playing together for over forty years! I've played in orchestras, bands and ensembles and conducted. Thank G-d, I'm happily married and the mother and grandmother of a blessed and beloved family. While raising the family I had little opportunity to be involved in my music for some twenty years, and now I am enjoying composing, arranging, playing and recording, and at this point, finishing and distributing our new album.
