Boruch Sholom Blesofsky, 19.
Brooklyn’s Crown Heights.
Studying for my Smicha.
I’ve always believed in “Emor M’at V’asei Harbeh.” My aspiration is to follow the footsteps of my father, who composed numerous Lubavitcher Niggunim, including the song ‘Ohev Hashem.’
I write music on the side (a large side I must say) and even composed a song for billionaire Ronald Perelman (which he loved) during his visit to Camp Gan Israel in Parksville, NY.
He hasn’t yet released his debut album, but watch out when he does. He’s got something you’ve never seen before.
Reb Moshe Vilenkin’s Niggun, just “phenomenal.”
A Jewish Star:
I’m a major fan, though I don’t associate music with competing. It’s simply expression. And business.

from random music critic #2345:
WHY ON EARTH are you sitting in what looks like an attic all crouched there, under some strange green banner, is there some significance in the green? Also why are you slamming a gate? And ALSO what is up with that move you do flapping your jacket in a stilted way?
please don’t miss minyen again on account of staying up late for this competition
from niggun lover:
WE WANT TO HEAR A NIGGUN!
from a stranger:

I think u have the most comments there ever was on col!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
big fan you got my vote.

WE WANT TO HEAR A NIGGUN!
A big fan
how do you know his view’s number??
He has 8778 views hes a winner!
Lots of fun and shtick but I don’t think that this is what you heard at your Shabbos table, if you would sing something from your Shabbos table (even a Karliner nigun) you would give yourself a better chance b/c it would be more natural.
Your aunt thinks it’s cute and creative. Av. B.
Boruch Sholom! We all loved watching this so much.
Chava says “This video is good and nice….”
Aliza says “I love your video very much….”
they ask me if they can watch it so I use this as a bribe. “when you get into pajamas, you can watch Boruch sholom’s video”
When r u going to make CD??????????????
amazed at the singer
so niceeeeeee for sure you win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
what a great musician
true music geneus
Boruch I’m glad I sew you by minyen this morning and I heard you Daven to the tune of “Im Atem”; well what should say, it’s a nice tune but in “psukei D’zimrah” ??!! but hey what ever inspires you. Good luck in your endeavors.
This video is really cool!
Way to go!
I really hope this contestant wins-
A true talent!
bsb you must be very good if you have 169+ comments
Boruch Sholom Blesofsky!!!!!!!
You’ve obviously gotten a lot of attention. You’re a definite super star!!! Seems like you’re a winner
THIS GUY GOT SOMETHING!
If you are reading this… Please answer… Just wanted to let you know i love watching AND Listening to this piece it is so much fun to watch and a pleasure to listen to. However can you answer me something? A few things that you do in the video, WHY ON EARTH are you sitting in what looks like an attic all crouched there, under some strange green banner, is there some significance in the green? Also why are you slamming a gate? And ALSO what is up with that move you do flapping your jacket in a stilted way?… Read more »
youve got the attitude s!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
with out question the most entertaining thing I have seen on col
Have you guys seen his brother’s entry (with the not-so-subtle message and all)?
We just watched this 2 times with our kids!!! Awesome~
your post sounds like a sugia of gemara…. live and let live buddy
I see this kid from time to time when I daven with the Smicha minyan and all I see is a kid who likes to enjoy life within the boundaries of halacha so why are some people so upset by his style of performance he’s just having a good time and he happens to be quite talented at what he’s doing so loosen-up and and let nature take its course if he wins I guess that that they’re looking for and if not it’s not what their looking for. In any event Boruch keep it up but please don’t miss… Read more »
This is true talent!
Don’t let your talent go!
Rock the House!!
1 vote per great-gradfather’s descendant!!
This kid is awesome!
go back in time say to the 80s and he’ll probally be a famous rock star (just has to grow a mohawk or s/t lol
first of all, so what? let’s assume that this kid has a lot of family and friends who are all voting for him – you ask if the judge can see past this – not sure of your ta’aneh. Anyone is free to vote. If this was purely based on the judge alone, there would be no voting. secondly, let’s use the number 100. If 100 people are voting, and there are takeh 40 voters who are friends or relatves, shouldn’t they get equal representation? It doesn’t matter what the motive behind the vote is. If his fans are a… Read more »
agree with number 16………
first time viewing this………..
You Rock BSHB!
Yep BZS! Havoneh!
You have guts man!
I love your style!!
This is the new jewish music!
We really liked your song!
Chabad kids in CA
That’s the best part!!!!!!!
Keep it up boruch!!!!!!!!!:):):):):)))
You can definitely sing a niggun with more hartz- you’re a Blesofsky- you have it in you.
But I love the Frailiche vibe you have!
It’s such a Tashkenter style
vote for Boruch!
vote for Boruch!
To elaborate on the nonsensical is irrational and about. Clearly this youngster has talent, and will epitomize the future of the ever recreated Jewish Music.
Minus the random screaches, and oooooooyeh’s that was quite nice and entertaining. he’s got a good voice and he’d make a really good entertainer!
if you really want him to win go to ajewishtar.com and vote
also vote for yermi yudkoff
From the number of feedbacks it seems that this kid has a big family and freinds. Can the judges see past it or does it go pureley by votes even if the person is not really the best singer?
B.S. I met your father and asked him what he has to say about di gantzeh zach and he sings to me “chazu chazu bonai bonai; bonai chavivai… so i guess he likes it too.
He has my vote!
I would not enter a competition against Boris The Great!
I just got a inside tip that Levi sent in his rendition if it’s true he got my vote. ( hey! what are friends for ) sorry B.S. & Avremel ober azoy iz dos. MK
with all due respect to the Tashkenters when we’re dealing with neginah …………. well you get my drift.
maybe you’re referring to the happy disposition then I’m with you all the way.
whoever you attribute the talent to, one has to say that all in all it’s a fun and a entertaining piece of ORIGINAL musical performance my family really enjoyed it.
I don’t know the yichus so well but aren’t the Blesofsky’s Baa’lei Neginah?
Its the Tashkenter Yichus!!!!!!!!
I heard he’s good too, I wanna see what these guys are all about.
i love it
I want it on my ipod asap

(Your the best)
The winner. hands down. I’ll buy this guys CD when he puts one out. Love the funkiness of the niggun a la Nyet Nyet by the Baal Shem Tov Band and Etz Chayim by Blue fringe.
This is the next KING OF JEWISH MUSIC!!!!!
A little WILD but thats sooo CHASSIDISH!!!!
NOT TOO SHABBY!!
Your bro might just win this due to his more conservative style, but I’ll bet it’s one of the brothers that win at this point.
It’s about time the B’s came onto the music scene time for a breath of fresh air and the B’s have a very good air for music.
BS, That was a Heck of a video……You did an excellent job… AMAZINGGGGGGG!!!!!:)
Go BS and go Avremel, wow!!!
Wow! Mendy Pellin with a great voice wrapped up in one!
u can hear the power in his voice and i really enjoyed the twist! a confidant , funky singer who had a real natural talent! he will def. make it big!!!
awesome. you had a vision and you stuck with it! i respect that! good luck! 5 big stars!!!!!
Check out ajewishstar.com to see Boruch’s brother Avremel.
…I think we have a winner!
wow this guy got alot of people that like him if i am the 101 comment!!!
but the singing sounds edited…we want to hear HIM!
youre music is unbelievable!!! i loved it!! it is innovate and entertaining and your voice is deep and phenomenal. you are a natural performer.
Very good voice. The shtick and other “stuff” shouldn’t affect decisions. It’s the voice quality that counts. He’s young and everthing else will develop. Great show of talent. Hatzlachah.
We love you
Dude ur amayzing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
WHAT A PERSONALITY !
I cant get over this kid! I watched his clip twenty times, hes spilling talent right left a center.
he got my vote!
if you’d keep to the piano style in the beginning and not with the rest “groovy” part.
good work anyway… thanks.
It’s funny and entertaining it flows great singing ober ah bissel tzu vild fahr mir . I think this kid has what it takes to originate songs that would draw interest .
Go for it you’re still young. Hatzlacha Nissim M.
dont forget the lil guys when u hit off
This guy is definitely the most entertaining of the all 22 contestants and some of them are pretty good.
Besides singing well he seems like a talented entertainer.
I LOVE IT!
That was one great performance!!! thumbs up!
P.S. there are alot of other singers on http://www.ajewishstar.com which did not make it to collive, and i really like some of them the shuki kid is really great, and others as well.
Go to http://www.AJewishStar.com
were rooting on empire too.
He’s the cutest thing on the block. so confident and creative. And he has a really nice voice too. Ask anyone who knows him. If you can’t see that, well then, either you’re a tad mekaneh or you’re tone deaf.
BEEN A FAN OF BARUCH S. FROM WHEN HE WAS A TINY KID WOW IS ALL I CAN SAY
for those of you who have a problem with the show/twisted music. He’s good at three things – piano, his voice, (you could hear his voice at the very start of the song), and his performance. Keep it up!
the stick! It shows star quality! also the vocals were real cool! He definatly is an original!
great voice! creative! and funny!
What impresses me most about this is the fact the lightheartedness of it all. Although he is talented he dosen’t look like he takes himself so darn seriously.
Only Yisroel Koch, Moshe Lehr, Mendel Markel and Boruch Blesofsky got that part.
The others look like they will cry if they lose.
They didn’t sing and move like that in “meine tzeiten” but HE ROCKS!
Sure we’ll be hearing more from this Chussid!
Boruch Hu, We Love You. You da best.
Cous, I hope you win the competition.
We R rooting for you.
Mendel Faigy Chaiky and Chava
Find me someone who dosen’t love himself And you found a very depressed person ( or less likely a Tzaddik from TANYA )
oh I almost forgot to comment on the video; well done but ( I hate those “but”s ) he’s young and it shows in every aspect of this vedio, his voice is gantz gut his presents is on the money his shtick are shtick and I wish he sang a more chasidisher niggun.
Good luck in your music and stick to your roots.
he has the greatest voice by far and he understands music so hes always on key.
Is he the youngest contestant?
It sure takes a lot of courage.
stick to chasidishe nigunim, with a voice like your fanmily has you will do it more credit. and without schtik.
Your the best you got our vote!!!!!!!!!!
The music at the beginning isn’t that great and the voice is washed with effects. The end version is amazing. Did you do them both?
YOU HAVE IT KEEP IT UP
yes ! wow!!! wait to go BS!!!!
Looks like Aaron Blesofsky.
Circa 1970 /5730
he was memorable in a positive way!
He was also entertaining! which is a very important aspect.
Great Work- definitely a winner!
wow your nephews are proud
kobi and chaim
This guy has an amazing voice.
Dont forget, anyone can be a singer, you gotta know how to entertain as well, and this guy is an entertainer.
Keep in mind, he is only 19, and I’m sure his entertainment will mature and get better as he gets older.
The video was quirky, camp style, not particularly my style, but you can tell he is enjoying himself, which is more impt than anything else!
i think lipa should judge this!!!!!!!!!!!!
To be a star you have to shine, that means you have to me memorable in a positive way.
He definitely is.
You should win , however if you don’t win this competition you should definitely go on to make creative music ( Videos) , take negative criticism in your stride, Positive criticism apply it to you creativity, and watch yourself go from Strength to strength Enjoy your journey.
I can’t see him as number one but he has talent in acting and what not and it certainly adds color to this competition…lol
Hey is this guy single????
and a great personality….u will make it:))))))))
had he not done his twist, i would give him a chance, but it just came out very twisted. (pun intended)
sing a song, show a little personality, and thats it.
want to do a little audio editing, ok, but not too much.
and the whole video editing part, aside from not being done very well, was more twisted then the “bochurim gone wild” style CGI videos.
if i judge him on his voice alone, if i can try and hear his voice itself, i would give him “decent”.
baruch sholom wow!!!!!!!!! how did you do that
totally could c this guy become the new “Jewish rapper” …….oy, what has society come to?
but hes good. cute. and very confident
ur cousin from across the street baruch sholom that was fantastic like most songs u make i think i got the jokes in the script
totaly enjoyed that
great personality! good voice! entertaining!!! Kol Hakovod!!!
33 Thanks for the secret plug!
i would say.. the second one wih a musical talent
I liked his singing but the video was to busy it was hard to focus on the actual song
Good song choice (not a chassidishe niggun but not a typical song either).
Proper focus (not on himself but on the music).
Good job! Good Business! Good expression!
there was a pic with him boris your the best keep it up
Here’s my honest report without bashing or sugar coating. It seems like this bochur is def a talented guy with tons of potential but I’d like to see more singing and less “show/shtick” It was too distracting. Please post another song but more song, less show.
“CHONY MILECKI ON THE ORGAN!!!!” Haha!!!
talented but a bit strange…
Really good voice!!!!!
Welcome back to earth? Where were you this summer?
Your Camp Director lol
I agree with him that Yoni is great but is he better than MBD or Fried? Is he even better then Gershon (I think Gershon has a better voice than lots of singers out there)
From my opinion, this contest is based on a persons singing skills, yes this video was pretty cool, it did not highlight any amazing voice, it was covered up by a twisted video. Maybe there really isn’t a good voice behind the video.
The new LIPA!!! 🙂
my kids loved it
I’m 99 percent sure he is talking about someone else that no one really knows is working on something. I’m “in the know” and it has to be this other person. (right L.B??)
great great singing and video ur awesome man
Remove all that and his voice is ok (not more)
P.S. Why on every new movie people comment “Best so far”? It is ridicilus.
he is definitely cute.
it was great
Wish you would have sang on of the songs that you composed!
If the only thing this competition did was give this young man exposure it would be worth the whole thing!
Whether he wins or not does not really matter, this kid is up and coming!
lol funny…good voice!
this one is the best-
wild, but greeeeeeeeeat!!!!!!!
what in g-d’s name was that
u got a lot of creative guts guts i respect that very much
He is really good and funny too. he def. has talent! I think he is the best so far!
started off nice, and cool, and then it went nuts… i would say this guy has the right talent to pursue something nice, but too much of that crazy rock it was not proportioned properly! yikes
Boruch Sholom – I love this video!!!!!!!!
you are the best!
It’s definatly Yoni Z………………
OMG THIS WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!
It’s between Gershon and Baruch Sholom so far!!!!
This is gonna be fun!!!!!!!!!!!
i love it, we need a new style and this kids got it, keep it up cant wait for your album to come out, thank g-d they’re asking us not to vote on the video because your using your earphones when you “on the phone” loved it though keep it up!
i enjoyed this one THE MOST!!!! if you aren’t gonna be the winner…i say you should go into the music business anyway!!!!!!
definately talented artist
with a twist
keep them coming
I AM GUESSING IT’S YONI Z.
amazing. i think this is the best one by farrrrrrrr
he has a great voice..and a pretty great personality..so it was entertaining:)
I loved the intro on the piano and was expecting great things only to be a bit disappointed with what followed. I s’pose I’m too much of an old fashioned purist to enjoy “the twist”
im also looking foreword to his mysterious fav. singer!!!
Amazing. I’m speechless. That was a really well done video.
the picture that is posted above is from the video and song that I really love, but I don’t know the name of the song by any chance do you know the name of the song and is there any way of getting it, thank you
