I am a big London Girls Choir fan and really enjoy
the CD. I teach at a school in Livingston, New Jersey...
Thank you so much,
Hello, across the ocean!
I found your CD this past Friday in my mother in law's car
and borrowed it. I have been listening to it nonstop since.
I must say, I haven't heard such a beautiful collection
of songs in ages (if ever!). I absolutely love it! The harmonies
are done extremely well, the voices are gorgeous, the music
very professional. My sincere compliments! (I wonder how
long it will take for my mother in law to ask for it back?)
Brooklyn, New York
spent a shabbos in flatbush with cousin for a bm, 2 cousins
of whom are local piano teachers. one wanted to know my
connection to you- after reading the silver lining insert..
she said your cd in NY is a "big hit', a "breathe
of fresh air", and that all her students want to know
how to play only your songs........
Hi! I want to wish you and
all the rest Hatzlacha! I just got my tickets yesterday,
and I was quite surprised (or maybe I shouldn't have been)
to see that there were only back seats left in the orchestra
section. I didn't think I had to go that early to buy good
tickets...you know, until I managed to convince my sister
to convince her friend...I guess it's too bad.
I do hope we'll get to hear enough of the choir, because
what happens many times when, for example, Miami teams up
with others, is that we lose out on them.
Dear Dina and choir,
My girls and I are big fans!
We saw you at Brooklyn College on Chol Hamoed . You guys
phenomenal!!! We loved every minute .The props ,music ,costumes
dances were superb. I'm sure you know that it was sold out
. People were
literally begging for tickets outside the auditorium. (
niece who is a good friend of mine couldn't even get seats)
May hashem give you the Koach to continue to do such beautiful
The S.. family
PS If we can ever host please call 253 ...
Dear Mrs. Cohen,
Thank you for your gorgeous concert and CD. My daughters,
aged 11and 8 loved it so much. Can we create a similar center
here in NY with the same caliber of music? So far, we have
not even come close but I know that so many people would
Libby, age 8 says," Your'e the best in the whole world
and I never heard anyone so good in my whole entire life.
Mom says, the level of musical knowledge and sophistication
was well beyond what we have been accustomed to from the
Jewish Music scene.
Gut Yom tov
Love Zisi, Dassy and Libby H.
ps i cried at the shabbos candle song!

your every concert bye!!!love,fraida g..
p.s. are you related to miri weiner?how? she was in my
bunk in camp this (past) summer my email address is
frogs1..... i really hope i hear from you
HI MY NAME IS ESTI. IM FROM
AMERICA AND I HEARD YOUR CD AND ITS ABSOLUTLY WONDERFUL!
ALL THE BEST,
Guess what! I just
couldn't resist the urge, and so I bought it yesterday.
I could say one thing - it's clear that this is one purchase
I will not regret! It is absolutely AMAZING! The songs are
so soulfull, especially the English ones. Did you really
write "My Little Bird" when your younger sister
was getting married? It is such a unique and original idea
to write a song to. -and the way you matched it up with
the Chupah tune! The harmonies are really creative and flawless,
and the soloists are truly talented - not to mention well-trained.
I see you tackled this project on all sides - just about
every aspect of it was done by you! your hard work and talent
is evident throughout.
I like the English accent - it's different for me, and it's
The music is very different than any production that we
have over here - you don't overuse any instruments, like
we see in much of today's Jewish Music. It causes me to
focus on the singing itself, and the blending of the voices.
.......thanx for a great cd!
Ahh, I just can't get enough of listening to my tapes of
the concert - every time I hear it, I feel like I'm there
all over again. And I can't stop being amazed.
The girls managed to stay on tune throughout, and each and
every solo was as beautiful as on the cd. I want you to
know, that every ... concert has its moments where the choir
sounds a bit off, or one soloist can't stay on tune, or
you hear the tremor in their voices, or they may omit difficult
harmonies, etc. You had nothing of the sort. I mean, I know
these girls don't spend their entire life rehearsing! How
do you do it?
I liked the introductions to each song - sometimes people
tend to forget that music is here to inspire us, not just
for our listening pleasure. I especially like your lyrics
- they are so meaningful, not like some others I know...
The Treasure was really moving. It is such a soulful tune,
and the choreography added that perfect touch.
Daago Minayin was carried out so flawlessly, and it makes
the original sound dry in comparison. I decided that women
can sing better than men. After all, they do have prettier
voices, if I may say so myself! Until now, we never had
such a professional sound from women.
The song Hallelu came as a big surprise to me. I would never
dream that it can be presented as so stunning! I never even
liked that song. Yet again, with the right voices, harmonies,
music... hats off to the girls on a BEAUTIFUL job!
The dance was fantastic. It was so perfectly even, down
to the very last step. The two little kids who introduced
themselves were just EDIBLE! That's exactly what we needed
to give it that extra 'English flavor.'
One Nation was the cutest thing ever! By the interlude we
hear ourselves laughing so hard! LOL! We were looking at
these older girls and thinking, what in the world are they
wearing?! When we saw the 'little feet' we were just holding
our sides! Too bad the people in the back couldn't see...!
So you know how many people you had to turn away at the
doors - but you don't know how many people stayed home altogether.
It takes guts to come to Brooklyn College without tickets.
Everyone knows that they don't allow anyone in without tickets.
So many of my friends and neighbors were mad about not being
able to come.
Hope I didn't bore you with this long email - but hey -
You said you enjoy getting feedback!

hi!!! yesher kojech!!
ur choir is OUTSTANDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!is there a new cd on
My daughter Shira's grandparents
bought her your Silver Lining CD for Chanuka and that's
all she wants to hear, over and over again.
I was impressed by the professional quality of the music,
both instrumental and voice. The London accent was intriguing
too; it's been a while since I lived in England.
Will you be making any more CD's? We'll be looking out for
Shoshana (formerly of England, now
in NYC, USA)
hi i looooove the c.d. silver lineing! AND i looove the
english acsent. could u please tell me how to listen to
more of your music on that website?
I'd like to get a copy of
your CD as a gift for a dear
friend who has just become bas mitzvah. Can you please
tell me where I can order one?
Thanks very much.
Boston, Massachusetts, USA

-chana. (i live in rochester
I am 10 years old, and live in Monsey, New York
I went to the London Girls choir concert in Brooklyn NY
on Chol Hamoed Succos . I really enjoyed it.
We of course love the CD. I was wondering why you chose
for the choir to say the word 'uvoirei" sometimes with
a sheva na under the reish in Mo Rabu even though it is
said with a tseirei. I know you needed one more letter/sound
to fit the tune/beat. You probably considered doing "uvo'oirei"
and I am wondering why you chose not to, to me they both
sound equally nice. Please let me know what was the ultimate
reason you felt it was ok to do this.
here to read Dena's response
I went to your Chol Hamoed concert in Brooklyn. I was totally
blown away- it was totally awesome! I actually took small
clips of some of my favorite songs and I could just keep
on rewatching it.
the tape.. those voices..
Thanks for coming to Brooklyn!
Hatzlocho for the future!!!
Dear Dena, amu"sh
Hi! My name is Tsippi. I live in Flatbush and know Mrs.
Plym from Yeshiva Tiferes Yisroel where I used to work for
a while. I want to tell you that I have been obsessed with
the Silver Lining CD from the first time I heard it -- and
I still cannot get over how amazing it is! At first, when
my sisters bought the CD, I thought it would just be another
annoying girls choir that's completely unprofessional and
boring, but as soon as the music began I realized this was
no ordinary girls choir. From the beautiful music to the
powerful voices to the catchy rythyms and tunes it's just
an outstanding album. My friend is also completely hooked
to your music, so as a birthday gift I treated her to the
Brooklyn College concert you put on on Chol Hamoed Succot.
We both enjoyed ourselves immensely! (We were both shocked
when we found out it was you singing the low part of Mah
Rabu!!) There were two little girls sitting in front of
me at the concert and they were jumping out of their seats
from excitement the entire time the girls were on stage
(and they were so disappointed when it was over )! As I
am typing this to you I am listening to the CD. It is so
pleasant and sweet. I have already gotten a few of my friends
to love your music as well. (Maybe a few of my friends will
email you too!) Thank you for providing such good music.
I'm looking forward to more of your beautiful productions!!
Have a super winter!
...about "My Little
Bird" To tell you the truth, the first second I heard
the music, my reaction was like, "Hey, where's the
rest of the orchestra?" But then I immediately began
to appreciate the beauty of it. I noticed how I can hear
the soft piano, strings, etc. - and how they compliment
the songs being sung. And this is what makes your album
so unique. Today, most producers are into adding as much
'noise' as they can to their productions - sometimes adding
so many deviations from the original tune, that it sounds
like a different song completely - especially now, when
putting out wedding mix albums became so popular. Your music
is so refined and special, it's really touching. It's actually
the first time I have been so moved by a female production.
The others cannot compare. And yes, every time I listen
to it, I'm still hearing something I hadn't heard the time
The song "Silver Lining" is definitely deserving
of the title track - I think it's my favorite, but then
again, every song can be my favorite.
The junior choir is absolutely adorable! It's beyond me
how you can get such young kids to sing such a song - I
don't think it's a simple one - and the harmonies are yet
And now for some more questions:
Do we get to hear you sing at all, or do you relinquish
the spotlight completely to the girls?
Who is the girl that can go so low by "Mah Rabu"?
I mean, it sounds unreal! Or is it just the use of today's
And one request - only if it's not too much of a bother:
Is there any way I can get the music sheets for keyboard?
Or at least just the chords?
Hi dena its Ruti from america
well there was a part of the concert that dunbfounded me
by the song "my sister is a bride" you and some
other girl did this really complicated dance it looked really
cool from where I was sitting! How many months of prep did
the choir do to prepare for this? Were the girls nervous?
Did they sing the whole plane ride over? btw did you guys
have your own plane? I have so many questions this is only
Hope to hear from you soon
P.s the dance by the concert was awesome to and perfectly
My name is Simmie and I live
in Ramat Beit Shemesh. My husband and I just
came back from Amsterdam where I heard your cd "Silver
Lining" for the first
time. We were staying with friends and their daughter introduced
me to the
songs and I told her I must take it for my children (I have
4 girls). And
since we came back, it hasn't stopped playing in our house,
so crazy they
are over it - my second daughter already made a choreography
Yagel (my children love dancing). And even after they went
to sleep already
I took it to the kitchen to listen to it while tidying up
household work a lot more fun).
I have to say kol hakavod
- way to go! This cd is high level - and I'm no
stranger to music, I come from a chazonim family - all with
(also the girls/women - even my girls knew to keep tune
and beat from when
they were very small. And they catch a song after only listening
once, they'll sing it over and over!) and music is always
a very important
part in our life. Always busy with it, wether it's a choir
or a show. So
when I hear something good I don't just say it to be nice,
but because it's
really good. So keep up the good work and I hope that you'll
see a lot of
naches from your work iy"h!!
Thank you for the CD it's
totally amazing. You're so talented. I really enjoy listening
to it. The songs and arrangements are amazing. Well done.
Keep up the good work.
Hope to see you here soon!
Love from C S
I was gratified to get your e-mail, I had sort of given
up...First of all, regarding the concert, what stood out
most was the Yiddishe chein on the girls' faces, the eidele
way they dressed, and moved. It must be the first time that
Yiddishe girls, dressed in a modest and beautiful fashion
such as you guys were, appeared on stage at Place Des Arts;
and that was a Kiddush Hashem, IMHO. THe singing, of course
was breathtaking. Miriam Sternlicht was my favorite singer,
the little girls were adorable, and the whole production
was superb. It is truly inspiring to see a person such as
yourself, with the amazing range of talents you've been
blessed with (singing, playing several instruments, writing
lyrics, shall I go on?), channeling it in this wonderful
manner, good for you!
p.s. My daughter and I have been listening to Silver Linings
endlessly! Great CD!
Is the concert that was in
brookyln college coming out on video? My mom is having regrets
about not going to your concert after I literally didnot
stop talking and singing about it.!
hi i was at the london girls
choir on sunday that was in montreal and i really enjoyed
it. it was so beautiful how many people showed up and we
were all able to tell how much effort was put in to making
such a beautiful choir with such beautiful girls, and head!
the songs are great.
love your #1 whatever,
chaya mushka g
beth rivka, montreal
Dena, thanks for replying.
Didn't think such busy pple. have the time for pple. like
What really impressed me was the was the way girls of all
ages and different backgrounds, work so nicely together
and form such an harmonious choir.
You deserve thumbs up for the organization!
Last but not least, the beautiful singing, harmony, and
dancing was most impressive!
Just got back 10 min. ago from your concert and wanted to
commend you on the wonderful job! Lucky for me, I had a
friend who was in your choir & on the Silver Lining
CD, so when Stacey Broch came to visit me in the summer
of 04, she brought her CD, and since then it's been playing
in my car. Track 8 was definitely a favorite!
This past summer, I was in England the first time for Stacey's
wedding & I met Raaya & Sara Greenman from the choir-2
girls with amazing voices-then i heard about your Showcase.
I desperately wanted to go and so I made my way down Bell
Lane to the Shatnez Center, in hopes of going to see this
concert-however the shop was closed & we were left that
night to sleep off our jetlag. Lucky for me, my classmate,
Bluma Heller, decided to bring the London Girls Choir to
From the costumes, to the dances, choreography, HARMONY,
song choices, and of course, your talented piano/guitar
playing, it was truly enjoyable! The Yaldei song was beautiful-it
truly depicted what Yaldei is. Those 3 little kiddies-especially
the curly-haired one, were precious!
So, even though you had to travel 7 hours, with a 5 hour
time-zone change, jetlag and our beautiful FREEZING Montreal
weather-we know it couldn't be easy-but I assure you, the
entire Montreal will be talking about it for the next few
Congrats on a performance spectacularly done & please,
keep up with your new songs, creative compositions, &
original music pieces which we love so much (they are so
regards from Stacey (sorry, i couldn't get behind stage
tonight to personally deliver her regards, I'm sure you
understand it was quite difficult!)
p.s. your French was extremely polite & well pronounced!
Hi there Dena,
My name is Reesa B.. (now W..) I don't know if you remember
me, our mum's are friends and we used to play together when
I would come to visit my grandmother, who lives in London.
Anyways, I wanted to write to tell you that I was at the
concert that you performed in Montreal a few weeks ago,
and I loved it! It was really wonderful. I was there with
my daughter who is 6, and she is still singing the songs
that she can remember:).
I wish you the best of luck with your choir,
All the best,
just wanted to tell you that i heard your cd and it is absolutely
stunning! I really enjoyed it!!!
hope you are all keeping well,
have a lovely summer!
love, Hadassah Leah (& Dov - who
did not listen!)
Hi. I'm 15 years old and
I live in brookyln,NY I recently attended the london girls
choir concert@ brookyln college I really want tell you that
it was awesome, it was as profesional as any concert I've
been to (and trust me its countless) and the choir really
blew me away,of course I've listened to your CD a million
times but this was the cherry on the top!! ...I have an
infatuation w/music and I was facinated by that spesific
Keep it up!!
P.s tsippi scarf told me about this website and she says
Pps. Silver lining 2????
DENA, I HAVE NO WORDS!!!
YOU SURPASSED ALL MY EXPECTATIONS BY FAR!!!
You created such a stir over here, you cannot imagine! The
amount of people searching for tickets once it was sold
out was unbelievable! Next time you'll just have to do two
I don't know where to start, as there are so many things
to say. The opening acts were very good, and I thought Karen
Daitchman sang very well. By the time Rochel Miller got
onto stage, everyone was just so impatient to see the choir
already - it was good for hyping everyone up!
I was amazed how each and every song presented was a whole
production in itself, not just another song. Yes, you gave
us enough to go home feeling satisfied.
What struck me a lot was the refinement of the girls. I
don't know if it was just a display of British class or
fine midos, but I'm inclined to think it was the latter.
It's very easy to feel conceited on stage when you know
you're doing a great job...I liked the wide age range of
the choir girls - it was so nice to see the young ones and
the mature ones singing together in such perfect harmony
with such original and even choreography. I loved the props
that were used for each song - they added so much spice
to the show.
I like the way you handled the stage - we got to see you
plenty - but not the whole time... I went absolutely crazy
over the way My Little Bird was presented! It was soooo
original! I felt like getting up and dancing a hora myself!
That circle with the dance in the middle....!!
The song Mimini is a great one. Is it featured on an old
album or is it a new song? I never heard it before. There
were some great young soloists there.
The trio with the Succos medley was just adorable - the
accent came out very pronounced here, and everyone was just
rolling! It all looked so well practiced, and I liked the
piano. I wish I knew how to play myself.
The song My Belief is really special. Is it going to be
featured on your next album? It really speaks to me. Experience
has taught me that everyone has their issues that they have
to deal with, and nobody's life is worry-free.
I have so much more to say, but it will just have to wait
till next time.
Dena, you've done it again!
I bought the DVD today, and I LOVE it! I could sit and watch
it over and over! It's exactly the way it was, I'm so happy
you didn't do any rerecording or tampering like all the
others who bring out videos of concerts do.
So when, when, please tell us WHEN IS THE NEXT LONDON GIRLS
CHOIR COMING OUT?
The video is just fabulous!
It's really lovely just seeing Hashem's beautiful children,
and their sweet faces......that little Chanie Weisenfeld
is so cute, you can bite into her! Anyway, I found it amazing
that practically every single kid got some sort of solo.
Some of my favorite parts are watching the adults, by Emor
Me'at and Hallelu. I love trying to figure out who's doing
And ALL the choreography is just EXCELLENT!
How did your concert in Montreal go? Was the crowd as excited
as were in NY? How many people cried?

Wow, Dena! I've actually
been a fan of your work since I was in ... studio, I guess
it's over a year ago now, and he played me your CD. Dirty
little secret: I was inspired by some of your arrangement
choices when I produced the .........CD!
... In general, the
entire concert was beautifully coordinated and produced.
I can't quite decide which part I liked the most, but what
was quite memorable was the surprise "chassana dance"
that came in the middle of "My Little Bird"! It
was a very interesting combination of paces and change in
What I noticed right away was the fact that every girl had
her hair down (at least in the first song) - which is very
impressive because I know that must have been hard work,

director of the outstanding London Girls Choir, Dena
I must tell you how amazed I was with your performance!
Never did I see anything so uplifting and beautiful!!!!!!
Thanx for coming to New York!!
Are you going to release a cd rom of the concert? Hope you
Best regards the greatest choir,

I just looooooved the new cd! The girls in my camp were
going crazy over it. I think it's a great idea to allow
girls with genuine talent to be able to express themselves
and allow Jewish girls and women to enjoy it.
Just wanted to let you know that your hard work is supremely
appreciated and we're anxiously awaiting the next cd.
The concert in Brooklyn was a hit! My sisters and I bought
the best seats we could find. Waiting for more!
...I was so impressed with
the girls' whole demeanor. They did not lack confidence,
and in fact they had tons of that, but they were so sweet
and natural - not flaunting at all. But never mind the British
And about My Belief, I was so deeply moved. What inspired
you to write it? Now I get chills every time I hear it.
Everyone can relate to it on her own level. The noise level
of the place was reduced to practically nothing, and I think
everyone was just awed. I'm so glad I can hear it on my
tape now, but I can't wait to have it on a professional
cd, where I can follow along with all the words. I can only
remember one instance when music brought tears to my eyes.
Did you enjoy performing at Brooklyn College? I really like
the place. What happened to their posh lighting affects?
Baruch Hashem, we not only
found concert and have accessed tickets- Mr. N. Waidenbaum
is a tzaddik gamor- , but you should know, we have a group
of 60 people coming from NJ to see you. Many of them have
not yet heard your CD- but have had some very convincing
PR sent their way!! ( As I've said, my daughter and I are
big fans!!!). I know there is additionally a group of girls
travelling from NJ. Everyone is tremendously excited you
and the choir are coming. My daughter has found the music
and the choir very inspiring. She loves to sing , and we
would like to be able to come backstage to say a quick hullo-
we know you're going right back after concert- but is this
possible? The girls all have differing thoughts of what
"cocoon" is about- The guesses range from an embryo,
to mashiach, or olam haba, to a sheltered, protected infant-
Can you enlighten us as to what your machshava was?
Gamar Hasima Tova to all- Sharone and Rochel
Sorry so late with
My 10 yr old KN"H daughter, who until now never cared
about singing or music, came back from Camp Agudah Midwest
(Michigan, USA) with a request to 'get this great London
Girls Choir.' I love singing, so that was fine with me,
especially now that my daughter was finally interested too!
Well...... your tape is DANGEROUS!
See, the first time I played Little Bird, I was driving,
and I shouldn't have been. Driving with my right hand, wiping
tears with my left. Then I switched. Drive Left, Wipe right.
And so on and so on, because I kept playing it over and
over. Omigosh. What you did with one of my "all-time
old-time" favorite tunes, that harmony....., those
words........, all I can say is 'Wow' because any other
adjective won't work. (Anyway there's no thesaurus on e-mail.)
I don't have a little sister or I'd probably still be bawling
as I write this. (I AM a little sister though.)
My children (daughter and little boys) know they're not
allowed to talk in the car when that song comes on. They
do though. "Oh brrrrrother," the little boys say,
rolling their eyes. "It's Mommy's song AGAIN."
And if we happen to be using our talking 'Navigator' which
announces directions as we drive (highly annoying unless
it's a tricky trip), you can hear me yelling at it all the
way in Europe if it, Heaven forbid, tells me to 'turn right
in 3/4 of a mile' during Little Bird. "Shush! You can't
give me directions now! Wait till this song is over!"
And then, of course, with all that song-time wasted, I have
to go back to the beginning.
The whole CD is amazing. Such sweet voices KN"H, all
'genuine,' none of that, how shall I say, 'nasal phoniness'
I truly do not enjoy on so many other recordings.
Thanks for bringing such great songs us, and may Hash-m
allow you to keep using your KN"H amazing gifts to
bring joy and music to Klal Yisroel until 120 BE"H.
I am a friend of Nena
Blake and her gorgeous girls and I just wanted to put on
record my appreciation for all your efforts and that of
all the girls/ladies in the choir for putting on such a
wonderful show last week.
The whole production was totally amazing, the costumes wonderful,
the dancing, singing and complete presentation was second
to none and I am always amazed at the standard of talent
there is around. It was fabulous to hear it all at the concert
and I am eagerly awaiting and have been nagging Nena, for
your next CD. Please put me down for the first copy. I almost
bought a second copy of Silver Lining to keep at home as
the one I have goes everywhere with me, in the car, in the
kitchen and back again and it is the favourite of not only
me, but my six year old son too!!!

I have a little daughter who
is going into year 2 in September. She attends

to hearing from you very soon
I have to tell you how absolutely
wonderful this CD is.
It's refreshing, beautifully
put together and absolutely soothing to listen to.
I'm sure you've heard this
all before but I just had to write.
I unintentionally bought this
CD and can't stop listening. I'm sure I'll miss the music
during the 3 weeks.
So is another CD in the plans?
Will we see another one out soon?
Thank you so much, for bringing
us such beautiful music.

Hi! We have the silver
lining album- my girls love it . the only problem is that
we have misplaced the album cover- I guess over sefirah
it got lost. Is there anyway we can get the words for my
little bird is flying away. Thank you,
There I was at the dentist this afternoon, when the hygienist
asks if I am related to you - she read your wonderful interview
in the JC. Well, you have another fan! She had heard of
your choir and thought it was a fantastic thing to do.
I wish you loads of success.
Lots of love

lives with her family (us) in Passaic, NJ, hums and trills
her way thru every day.. She is in a small local girl's
choir, after taking some voice lessons from a local musician
last year. She's still attempting to learn snapping as a
result of consistent listening to "Avraham Yagel".
After 6 or 7 persistent repetitions of that refrain for
the Yeshiva Ktana Passaic carpool, I can usually manage
to wrangle a listen of the very calming, and slightly haunting,
"Cocoon". You have some real live died-in-the-wool
fans here, not counting the numerous girlfriends my daughter
has exposed to the CD. We greatly look forward to this concert,
would like to spread the word here, and would like to hear
more details, please!! Thank you,- In appreciation of hartsig
and Yiddishe creativity!

I bought this CD in
Eretz Yisroel just looking for new girl's music for myself.
Hadn't heard anything one way or the other of it. Are we

stopped listening and my daughter introduces all her friends
to this delightful auditory treat!! Great inspiration for

I wanted to tell you how beautiful your cd is and how much
we enjoy it. I appreciate your melodies and harmonies as
well as the musical accompaniment and special effects. I

i live in Brooklyn new york
i just listened to your CD- Silver lining and i know u probably
get this a lot
but it was awesome!!!!
i have a sister that is to be engaged and that "little
bird" song really touched my heart.
My other is the "one nation"
also, I've been around the world- all over
Israel, Venezuela, Argentina,Texas , Michigan, LONDON, and
but my real request is that you should organize a concert
in the flatbush area
in my eigth grade in my school-Prospect Park Yeshiva, this
CD is the most spoken about topic
everyone hums it during brakes and plays it during free
i really love this CD and wish you to make many more masterpieces
such as this one
from a great fan
Hi i would like to apply

My name is Miriam from New York. I just wanted to compliment
you on your FANTASTIC cd. I was at my friends house and
heard the cd playing. I borrowed it that day and could not
stop listening to it. The next day i went to the store and
bought it myself! The girls have gorgeous voices and the
harmony is amazing, the english accent is also really cute.
I really love the cd. I cant wait till the next one comes
out! Thank you!!
Hi! We're checking in from across the ocean () just because
we're so impressed!
As soon as we saw the advertisement for Silver Lining, we
snagged the CD off the store shelf! Its been turning contently
in the CD Drive ever since then! In fact, although we are
taking midterms (two weeks of intensive exams) we can't
resist singing along with the tape, (with the sheet in hand,
of course!) and we definitely can't ignore the CD when we
hear the intro to Avraham Yagel and Mah Rabu.
We've even gotten used to the accent! That's an accomplishment
We want more, we want more...!
Oh! When are ya' gonna perform on our end of the world?
When you do. do it here in Boro Park-or somewhere really

Ian just told me that his daughter keeps nagging him to
buy Silver Lining - so she might buy one tonight and he
also told me that his son in Yeshiva in Israel - heard the
CD was "really good" from "guys" over
there and keeps asking him to secretly send him one!
I was wondering if i could get a password and possibly information
about purchasing a few cd's. i heard your cd from a friend
of mine in new york and i loved it! i live in Detroit, Michigan
in the USA, is there any way to get your cd here? if not,
i'd like to order through you. please let me know! thank

cD when I was in Israel and it's simply beauuuuuuuuuuutiful.
Hi! I listened to your clips
online. Awesome! I would like to know where I can purchase
the CD. I have access in Antwerp and in NY.
P.S. Do you know if all the Diamant's are related? It's
my grandma's maiden name.
A friend of mine forwarded me the link to the shira center's
web site, and i was so awed by what i heard! i am the head
of the girls choir in college...- of yeshiva university
in new york, and i was very inspired to hear a female choir
perform so beautifully. i was wondering how i could get
a copy of your cd! i am from monsey, so i was wondering
if the cd is available in any of the judaica stores here.
with your permission, maybe we could perform some of your
songs here in new york...

I love your cd! I heard it in Camp Shira from one of the
london girls, and I'm dieing to have it! My friend has the

I would really like a password, to listen to the girls singing
as I really enjoy hearing them.
Thankz From Esti.
... I have to tell
you I LOVED the CD. Every time my hubbie went out of the
house yesterday I switched it back on!
I have to say I think
what you're doing there with the shira centre is absolutely
amazing - to have a talent like yours and your choirs do
must be very frustrating when you're frum because of the
lack of opportunity to exercise it and I just think it's
My house no. is 26 by the way - if you're ever passing drop
in for a cup of coffee!
ps my 5 year old daughter really enjoyed the junior choir's
song on your cd - she was very taken with all the mention
of the school names etc - couldn't quite believe her school
was mentioned on a real cd!
I forgot to mention
you guys were brilliant, (including our
family friend - Nena Blake - she was fantastic!) you had
ta-a-apping, and if you wuda sung any longer, I wuda been
dancing in those
aisles!! gr8 stuff.
The people working here in the office would very much like
to listen to some of the beautiful songs! One of them would
like to send her daughter to your primary choir. Please
could u send me a password to perelep@... so that we can
listen to a few of the clips.
Firstly, we're hooked to your
cd - no jokes! My mother-in-law had it playing 24-7. She
had one copy in the car and one in the kitchen on LOUD so
we seriously heard it the whole time. I hadn't listened
to it before we went there but we were very impressed. Anyone
who walked into the house was made to listen to it! Since
I've come back (erev shabbos) I've already nicked my mum's
Anyways, WELL DONE - it's
How are you? I have been meaning
to write to you since last July. Remember when I met you
at the showcase? I bought your CD then and I haven't stopped
listening to it. I just love it so much - my kids do too
and they sing along with the words! I lent it to a friend
here and she loved it too! Then I saw it in my local Judaica
shop here and I got so excited I told the lady who serves
there that you were my friend in school and its such an
amazing CD. Can you believe that you are famous here in
My mother also faithfully sends me the Tribune each week
and I saw a write-up about it so now I thought I just have
to write to you.
We are doing well here and keeping very busy, we just bought
a house and will be moving very soon, keep well and we are
looking forward to the next one!!
Dena, I just listened to your
cd, it was playing in shoshi’s car which I borrowed
and I couldn’t leave the disc in the car when I got
to my destination. I am so amazed at how beautiful it is.
The lyrics together with the melodies and wonderful arrangements
are just too perfect, it could definitely be classified
as divine. Are you aware firstly at how talented you are
and how popular you have become in Brooklyn? All the girls
here are burning cd’s so please send over as many
copies as you can and stock it in Eichlers and all the other
Judaic stores before the copyright sin becomes too rampant.
Also, why don’t you make up a cd with some men or
boys singing (or is there some halacha now that allows men
to listen to women singing in a group so that not a single
voice is discerned, it might be allowed somehow, I don’t
know for sure), either way, I think this disc is too good
to keep for women only?
Your music has captured the
essence of the spiritual quest for identity for Jewish women
world wide. I think you have done a wonderful job and I
am so proud that someone from my home town has produced
such a great contribution to Jewish music. The songs all
so different and yet so new and fresh. The tunes are so
funky and yet, at the same time heart-rending and even soulful
that cuts one’s heart to the quick. The song cocoon
especially I found the most interesting. What a concept,
and how tastefully you developed it. I am so impressed I
have no words. It is so deep and yet so simple. It has become
immensely popular here in New York. Everyone is talking
about in the schools...
I’m hoping you remember
who I am...
