December 2, 2010 2:24 pm

You’re totally right! Please, COLlive, could you ask MBD to be a judge?
Also, I agree with #36. Gershon Shapiro and Choni Grunblatt have extremley good voices, please ask them to join once more.

Thank you.

December 1, 2010 8:31 am

how do you sign up.

The word on the street is
November 30, 2010 2:48 pm

The word is that Gershon Shapiro will go for it again (heard on Facebook). I can’t wait to hear what song he will sing this time. I hope AF takes it a easy with him this time around. Let’s NOT chase away GREAT talent please.

to 50 lol
November 30, 2010 11:06 am

Good one….

November 30, 2010 2:06 am

i sing opera professionally but have not been able to preform for a while i would love to audition but nebach all the others wont even stand a chance so i think i wont even try but maybe

What will they be judging this time?
November 30, 2010 1:07 am

I hope to see profesional comments coming from the judges, focusing on the singing, if this is what the competition is about.
and show that they have a clear view on what they are looking for, and keep it till the end. nigunim-no nigunim, singing or presence, charisma…etc

I want to be at the concert but...
November 29, 2010 10:37 pm

Does anyone know when they announce the 10 semi finalists?

November 28, 2010 10:32 pm

The winner will receive:
A single Jewish song of their choice produced at producer Ruli Ezrachi’s Studio in Brooklyn, with music.
The winner will also receive coaching by Avraham Fried for the single.
Finally, the winner will receive a $1000 cash prize.

November 28, 2010 1:12 pm


still fried and pellin
November 28, 2010 4:00 am
my suggestions
November 28, 2010 12:40 am

This is a great opportunity for wannabe singers. I wish to see some great new talent this year. No offense but not everyone from last year were on par but certainly the semi-finalists should give it another try. I would suggest the following changes to them: 1) Choni Grunblat A great sweet voice. This time invest in your video a little more Judges did judge not just the voice). 2) Blesofskey Let us hear your voice and don’t mask it this time. 3) Gershon a great and powerful voice this time show your personality more and try to be comfortable… Read more »

Can MBD Judge
November 27, 2010 11:28 pm

I think Mordechai Ben David is the King of Jewish Music for sure! He has a gorgeous voice and seems like he would be a gentle judge and a real mentch. Not saying anything against anyone else, I think he would be an asset. Isn’t it open for anyone who wants to enter? Yeshivish, Chassidish, S’fardish – no one says they can’t enter, so pass it along! I love this contest and since I am partial to Blesofsky’s (related to one) – go win some!

November 27, 2010 11:25 pm

is it that the y alwys have to p[lay a few notes of piano before introducing themselves??
sooo nerdy!

to # 32
November 27, 2010 8:13 pm

thats so mean yes we do we love boruch shalom

goo figureee!
November 27, 2010 7:38 pm
please ask them come back
November 27, 2010 6:07 pm

Please ask the extremeley talented Gershon Shapiro and Conoi Gruntblat to give it a secoond try. I am a HUGE FAN of both their voices. I wish icould hear them again and hopefully both live as finalists. They were both my favorite nit they were both mosjuged and mistreated. I wish they go for it again and you get a chance to correct the misjustice. It is simply a crime to let such singing talent go to waste.

November 27, 2010 5:53 pm

im forsure winning

#9 is right!
November 26, 2010 3:15 pm

Totally Right! must be sensitive to the children who are in the contest! Children need to be told only good about themselves!! (unless being disciplined)

Pick it up a notch.
November 26, 2010 3:10 pm

I think you should have incentives for the all the contestants and finalists, not just for the winner.

to #11
November 26, 2010 2:51 pm

no wi dontttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt

November 26, 2010 2:49 pm

love the competition, very excited, but I do agree with others. mendy pellin should be an MC not a judge. You get the same pellin value from hid MCing the ENTIRE competition, not just the show. he can host the videos, etc. but he has no place on a judges panel deciding MUSIC. Come on .. and this is NOT a knock on pellin, he says himself on his facebook. he knows nothing about music. He should be hosting.

yoooopee dooooooooo
November 26, 2010 2:05 pm

Me and my DEAR friend are going for the kids’ Jewish star!
WER’E WINNING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

November 26, 2010 1:48 pm

i think the the semi finalist should sing a 2nd song for the semi finals

way to go!
November 26, 2010 1:32 pm

i hope blesofsky runs again!!!

To #8
November 26, 2010 1:14 pm

The winner gets a spot in YBC and wins 1000 dollars in cash.

To #25
November 26, 2010 1:13 pm

The winner gets a spot in Yeshiva Boys Choir and wins $1000 cash.

November 26, 2010 12:51 pm

Do any of the other finalists win anything, or just the winner?
Are there any grants or discounts available at studio’s to be able to fund the video and the music?

a jewish star rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
November 26, 2010 12:48 pm

last year was amazing
and I hope this year will be even better
good luck to everyone!

November 26, 2010 12:40 pm

and they must include the three songs.
1 ‘Im Atem Meshamerim,’
2 “Tell It To Them.”
3 ‘Yevonim.’

November 26, 2010 12:04 pm

November 26, 2010 11:41 am

Thats a great Idea!

November 26, 2010 11:41 am

The prizes are on the website it u go to ajewishstar.com it says what it is. I think its something with a song and avraham fried also I remember it said a thousand dollars

Bottom line
November 26, 2010 11:33 am

What is the Prize?
Does the finalist win anything besides the concert, do the last 3 win anything, and how about the final 10?

Boruch Sholom
November 26, 2010 10:20 am

I hope you join this year I can’t wait to see what you’ve got in store.

November 26, 2010 10:16 am

Sooo excited sounds great 3 judges they r gr8!!!
Hatzlacha to all the contestants!!!!
Ps it was amazing last year Avraham Fried WOW the singing was amazing Negunim came Aliveeeee Thank uuuu

my opinion
November 26, 2010 9:14 am

I think that this competition should go much more beyond Lubavitch, how about litvish, chassidish, sfardish?? I think this would be great for the entire frum communitites.

November 26, 2010 9:07 am

Glad there’s an encore. Wonderful outlet for chassidshe bachurim to express their talent and great entertainment for the viewer. Gut Yom Tov, Gut Shabbos

so excited!
November 26, 2010 8:35 am

can i join can i join can i join!!!!!

November 26, 2010 7:17 am

Wahooooo! Can’t wait! Jewish star rocked last year!!!!!!!

November 26, 2010 6:02 am

everyone wants baruch shalom….!!

to 9: Great point
November 26, 2010 3:57 am

You raised a very good point and from what I understand the judges will not be speaking about the kids competition and there won’t be comments at all about them for the exact reason you mentioned

sensitivity please!
November 26, 2010 3:52 am

I just hope that they screen comments about what people think about the kids and only let positive ones go on. And I hope that the judges will also be nice and sensitive to the kids. It could kill a child’s self esteem if they will be treated like the adults last year.
Looking forward but please don’t ruin our special talented Kinderlach.

November 26, 2010 3:26 am

what do you get for winning?
i understand publicity.. but theoretically for sure the top 3 get equeal ‘fame’…
unless there is a specific prize. maybe COL sponsoring his cd or something..??

Blesofsky ? NUUUUUU
November 26, 2010 3:09 am

when are the Blesofsky brothers coming out with an album??????

November 26, 2010 3:08 am

What is the reward, I think if you make it a bit better than last year it will increase the competition.

agree with 3
November 26, 2010 3:00 am

The judging by them both were not good. I guess nothing learned.

November 26, 2010 2:51 am

cant wait. smart of you to add the juniors….

November 26, 2010 2:45 am

After last year they still take Mendy Pelin and A. Fried as judges … ?

A Small Tip...
November 26, 2010 2:24 am

Okay. Why doesn’t Mendy Pellin and Benny Friedman switch places??? I think, Benny knows more about music and would be good on the judging panel; and Pellin, is better at public speaking and he would be great at MCing the soul to soul concert. And not to mention that he’s a pretty funny guy, it would spice up the concert!
PS) Eli Gerstner will be a lot more interesting to watch than that other guy they had on last year (Michoel Streicher??)…

so excited!
November 26, 2010 1:55 am

Really looking forward to this year’s contest!
looks like its gonna be amazing!
