David Abikzer - Birkat Kohanim

 the sidebar you will see a player that features a sample (partial) recording of Cantor David Abikzer doing Birkat Kohanim.  The recording was taken from a very old cassette I own.  Birshut Ha-Rav - if he wishes I will be more than happy to remove it.

Please support Chazzan Abikzer by purchasing his music HERE

This song (I think) can be found HERE

He and Rabbi Chaim Louk are fantastic Moroccan Chazzonim.  I spent many a Shabbos with Rabbi Louk when he lived in Los Angeles.

Stop the Occupation!

 This is no joke.  We need to end the occupation.   


The fact that Turkey has the balls to triumph the human rights of the so-called "Palestinians" is not only sad but amazingly hypocritical.  Genocide against the Armenian nation was sick enough, but Turkey's long and suppressive occupation of Kurdistan barely gets a mention in the news.

I am calling on all my readers to start spreading the word.  Turkey, Syria, Iran and Iraq all occupy the homeland of the indigenous Kurdish Nation.  Within Turkey, Kurds are harassed and beaten.  When I was Istanbul I personally witnessed a Kurd talking at a pay phone only to be kicked and punched by a group of three or four Turks.  What was his crime?  Speaking Kurdish.

Turkey, Syria, Iran and Iraq are occupying a land that is not theirs.  It is time for Jews the world over to speak out against this brutal occupation and unmask the hypocrisy.

Myth and Facts

Stumbled on their website.  They are, of course, one of the oldest and most respected anti-Israel watchdog groups.  Their books are available (for free) online.
