I know that there are people who grew up in religious homes who cringe at this group – but I love them. I grew up with pop and rock music (70’s stuff – Fleetwood Mac, Earth Wind and Fire, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Billy Joel, etc.). After I became Orthodox I began to appreciate the Jewish music (although I never developed a taste for the syrupy stuff…)but the combination of Jewish lyrics with a beat is really my favorite.
Here is a video by the group Oif Simchas (a Yiddish term meaning – “at celebrations”). The title of the song is Dor Metzuyan – loosely translated as “An excellent generation”. It is a rebuke to the old fogies who claim our young people are not as good as the older generation. Enjoy!
