A New Album for Messianic Jewish Children and Their Friends

What child doesn’t like stories? And what better way to teach our children about God than from amazing stories from the Bible.

The new Children’s CD we are working on consists of stories from both Old and New Testaments. This Maoz first-of-a-kind project started from three songs written by Hadasa Natali Shechtman, a children’s pastor at “Beit Emmanuel” congregation in Jaffa, and quickly grew to a ten-song music CD – all, of course, in Hebrew!

The songs were born and written from the writer’s experience with the children from her congregation, in cooperation with Roman and Tanya Kadin of Maoz Music Department, who composed and arranged the songs.

The Biblical story receives new life when it is performed by children with innocent and pure voices coupled with contemporary music. Each song has a different music style; in the songs there are touches of various genres. The project makes the Bible accessible to children through lyrics, rhyme and music that is enjoyable and catchy.

Several children from our ‘Music-Making For Kids’ program participated in the recording of this CD, and the little singers come from families of both believers and non-believers. This CD will be completed soon and we are extremely excited to share it with the children of Israel!
