Israeli music stars Ohad Moskowitz, Itzik Dadya, Uziah Tzadok and the Kinderlach performed for a sold out crowd on Chol Hamoed Sukkos.
The event, “Jerusalem in New York,” was co-led by renowned Maestros Gershon Frieshtat of Israel, and Yisroel Lamm of New York, bringing popular Israeli entertainers together for the first time in New York.
The spectacular performance at the Millennium Theatre in Brooklyn was produced by David Fadida and conducted by the Aaron Teitelbaum Orchestra.
Ohad, known for his many popular albums and Jewish pop hits, performed his all-time classics and crowd favorites such as “V’erastich,” “Malchuscha” and “Boi Kallah,” to the thrilled crowd.
He also performed a new song, “Levado,” an instant hit with the crowd.

The concert included performances by Mizrachi sensation Itzik Dadya, whose hits include “Rabi Nachman” and “Bitfilah,” and Uziah Tzadok, the “Wonder Boy of Israel,” who took first place in the reality show “Beit Sefer L’muzikah”, and the wildly popular singing group The Kinderlach. They were accompanied by the Yedidim Choir of New York.
Special guest star, composer Yossi Green, was called to the stage to accompany Ohad and Itzik Dadya in a “mashup” performance of his hit compositions “Tanya” and “Aderaba.”
A highlight of the evening was a special tribute to the composer and philanthropist Shlomo Yehuda Rechnitz, as the artists all joined on stage to perform a special medley of his top songs.
