Jacob Feldman and the Netivot Hatorah Choir - Ani Ma'amin

"Ani Ma'amin."

This was the highlight feature of the Netivot Choir's performance at Toronto's recent Zimriya Festival. My daughter is in her third year with the choir. This boy, Jacob, is in grade 5.
Isn't he gifted?

Classes are coed until grade 6. Grades 6, 7 and 8 are separate.

Children are allowed to sing in the choir until they are bat- or bar-mitzvahed.

At the Zimriya, I sat in the second row of the theater and my eyes welled up with tears when Jacob sang this. The same happened when I viewed this at my home computer.
He literally can move a person to tears!

Amazing! I love Jewish choirs, as you know I am a huge fan of the Miami boys choir. But this boy is truly gifted - brought me tears too!!!

He is definitely a future cantor. I play Jewish music on the piano; it would be quite a thrill to accompany him on a song or two or more!
