Music for Jewish children and their families that will educate and inspire their brains, bodies and souls.
Miss Emily loves to sing and celebrate.
This album is a collection of songs inspired from Jewish text, mostly from the Shacharit (morning) liturgy. Daily prayer makes me a better human being, helping me to focus my day with gratitude and love. My mission is to share that experience in a way that will gift the intrinsic value of this tradition to those who participate with the music. My hope is to distill values that can be meaningful in a developmentally appropriate way to children and their families while educating and inspiring them to live and to play by some of these ideas. In my teaching, I strive to incorporate opportunities for people with all types of intelligences to excel, and I hope that the album will promote experiences of moving, listening, interacting and singing. "Kid's" music can and should be enjoyable for their grown ups who purchase and listen to it with them. The music of this album will be modern and meaningful, the lyrics simple and inspirational.

Do I just want you to give me money?: No! There are a couple of great things about Kickstarter.
One: Nothing is for free. There is a gift for each level of donation and I have tried to make it equal to every inch of your generosity (see rewards section on your right). PS You can give a larger sum of money if you want, even if you don't want me and my band to come do a show for you...
Two: Kickstarter is ALL or NOTHING funding. If I don't make my goal, I don't get any of the money, Nada, Klum, Zilch, Zero... You will never be charged. You know what I love about that? We are in this together, it is OUR project.
Three: I'm eternally grateful for any and all participation and support.
What if we raise more than the goal? (PS That would be awesome and ah-mazing): The money will go towards recording more songs to share!!! I've got tons of tunes ready for the studio, just looking for the means to do so.
You are a blessing. I love you!
