nifty sweater!

What's the big deal?

Benny Friedman is a very nice person. But, aren’t we making too much of a todo about some music? It’s just a CD of music. What’s the big deal? I’m sure the music will be nice, and we will enjoy it; but…. Do we make the same tzimus about someone writing a new Sefer? Someone becoming a Shliach? Seems like this is all a little overblown.

to evrybody that has a problem with the cover
the cd is not only being released in CH, its for the whole world, and theres no need to change the cover and for Crown heightser to make a big fuss about the cover when u guys r maybe 1% of the people on the world buying the cd,,,

it is not that eastern parkway is the problem it is that he is standing in middle of the street any street…. i am sorry but it sends the worng message

a cd release party without the cd>>>what’s the point? i realize it’s a marketing stunt but…it seems to me you gotta have the moichendise to have a party…no?

Benny's and his father In-law look like twins!

Benny is my hero

It looks like a nice chasidic melava malka.

Ps I am very photo- genorous.

Nice to see the Bialestocks were there!

Beautiful simcha
November 1, 2009 9:50 am

Beautiful to see a family as together as this family is and to see friends from the music industry from all corners of the frum world and musical world out to celebrate Benny’s CD. It’s a tremendous show of Ahavas Yisroel in the Jewish Music Industry and the party was an incredible idea.. and mazal tov to everyone and everyone involved. It IS a Kiddush Hashem and I hope other children in CH and Boro Park and all parts of the Jewish world see they can strive to use music for good.. and to add simcha to the world. And,… Read more »

that’s what makes benny – he is not a glamorous guy, he’s a very emesdike guy and the party really reflected himself and his talent

November 1, 2009 9:19 am

He was OUT OF TOWN!!!

Ribono Shel Olam! Didn’t you hear Lipa’s song about Dimyoinis? Hasn’t Lipa taught you anything? Or are you perhaps in a huge fight with Lipa and that’s why you don’t want to learn from him? Does he owe you money? You owe him? What’s the scoop? Give us the dirt!

Man, Fried was out of town.


November 1, 2009 9:16 am

instead of pontificating with all your pshatim, maybe it was just as simple as avreml was not in crown heights, he had a gig. (which he did)

wat i stink
November 1, 2009 9:16 am

i thuink that the picture is a phenomenal stunt appropriate for the grand openeing of his career zach because its like a bon jovi stunt men shpringt foon himel and voila he’s in the middle of his carreer. Benny rocks forever his my god . cmon benny you give em wat 4

Give us the CD already! :)
November 1, 2009 9:15 am

Enough with the buildup, where are the goods? Or is this a giant, international online color war breakout??

Benny and Avraham Fried
November 1, 2009 9:07 am

Benny Friedman owes a lot to his uncle Avraham Fried. First, as every Jewish singer these days owes a lot to Fried and MBD and other pioneers who paved the way. Second, being a nephew clearly helped Benny to start. I’m sure the decision not to attended was taken by both Fried and Benny. His presence would have cast a further shadow and Benny career and album. He has grown up and its time to prove himself, to make it on his own. All we can hope is that he develops a distinct style and voice, and does not just… Read more »

if ur kids as stupid to look at it & say oh,its ok walk down the middle of Eastern Parkway, better watch out for that kid cuz he has probs

to number 2, we heard already in this and every other comment section from you. Enough already, do you think publicly harassing someone is something we should be teaching our children? If you are so concerned then email benny directly. Trying to embarrass someone in public is not something I want my children seeing is ok.

4) what did avremel do?

Where's Avremel?
November 1, 2009 8:52 am

Have you noticed Avremel anywhere? What’s he afraid of?

November 1, 2009 8:48 am

Mazel Tov Benny

November 1, 2009 8:42 am

Does Avraham Fried get any credit in any of this that benny is doing. Seems like avremels name is not mentioned anywhere.

November 1, 2009 8:32 am

It’s very refreshing to see an actual “Chasidic Singer” the old-fashioned way, with a very simple looking celebration for the record release. Our kids so admire these “celebrities” that it’s great to see someone I wouldn’t mind them admiring. Just like a his uncle in more than one way.

Brocha Vhatzlocha!

Doesn't anyone think???
November 1, 2009 8:23 am

I still think the cover isn’t the smartest thing I’ve ever seen. It sends a great message to the kids: it’s OK to walk down the middle of Eastern Parkway (& pray you don’t get hit by a car.)

AW! I missed it.
November 1, 2009 8:21 am

Looks like a ton of fun.
