Rabbi Jay's latest CD
"Wrapped Up In The Fringes"
The 14 original songs contained in this collection cover a number of musical styles, and range from liturgical to biblical themes and beyond. Produced and engineered by the multi-talented Troy Dexter (producer of Julie Silver, Rabbi Joe Black, and Doug Cotler, and many others), Wrapped Up In The Fringes features guest vocal appearances by Rabbi Joe Black, Nancy Linder, Sue Epstein (and her daughter Jordana), and Cantor Mike Stein. Many of the songs on this CD have already become favorites including:
Hashkiveinu (Rabbi Jay's most requested piece of music),
Ma'ariv Aravim & Lechu N'ranena (Friday night favorites!),
Wrapped Up In The Fringes (already a Bar/Bat Mitzvah classic!),
and Adon Olam (which always has people dancing in the aisles!)
