Neshamot Chadoshot – New Souls : Meir Yitzchak & Friends

by yossi April 21, 2010

“Shabbos songs have always been special and moving to me, From Mir to the Second Lebanon War” says Yitzchak Meir about his debut album “Neshamot Chadoshot – New Souls”.  Yitzchak Meir & Friends meet on Shabbos Night. Yitzchak Meir grew up in Moshav Gimzu, the son of the Rav of the moshav (journalist Yedidya Meir is his brother). Yitzchak currently lives with his wife in Nachlaot in Jerusalem. He spent a number of years learning in Mir and in Chevron. At a relatively late age, he decided to join the IDF and even fought in the Second Lebanon War. Shabbos songs are a major part of his spiritual world. He is very fond of both old melodies and newer ones. “These are the loftiest moments of the week,” he says, “when the neshama yeteira of shabbos enters a person through the portal of music”. He explains that these tunes have always accompanied him, from his parents’ Shabbos table to Mir with its hundreds of bachurim and through the battle in Wadi Seluki in the Second Lebanon War, a tough battle that took place on Shabbos night, during which he softly sang these songs by himself. A few years ago, he began organizing an event called “Making Shabbos on Thursday.” Along with a group of friends, he leads groups of both religious and secular people from all over the country that meet on Thursday evenings to sing Shabbos songs. Some people already know the songs but enjoy a new understanding of the meaning of the words, some are hearing them for the first time in their lives. These meetings gave birth to the album “Neshamot Chadoshot – New Souls,” that was recorded in a lively spontaneous atmosphere, like a reunion of old friends. The CD, which features the popular hit song “Kah Echsof” also includes guest appearances by Aaron Razel, Yosef Karduner, Daniel Ohaviel and other top Jewish music performers under the care of Eran Klein. The classic chassidic niggunim are sung here for the first time in Hebrew (not “Ivris”) with authentic chassidic arrangements. Come introduce your soul to “Neshamot Chadoshot – New Souls.”
