    The Phenomenon of ‘Yesh Tikva’

    It’s a song with a message of hope and a tune that seems to magically wipe away feelings of despair. Singer Benny Friedman was interviewed by the Yated newspaper about the phenomenon of his latest hit "Yesh Tikvah." Full Story

    His grandfather came from Poland, his grandmother from the Ukraine. His mother comes from a different foreign country called Newark, New Jersey.

    I’m a ba’alas teshuva and I love this song! I’ve had to change the type of music I listen to in becoming religious and this song gives me tikvah when I go through up’s and down’s on my journey to lubavitch observance. Yesh tikvah!

    When was last time you saw other singers, and such high profile ones, quote on the success of another persons song! Wow!! That is beautiful.

    Soon it might be, “Avraham Fried, whose newphew is superstar singer Benny Friedman” 🙂

    Love yesh tikvah!

    Gets in to bed every night and after saying krias shema says, “can I hear yesh tikvah?” Her older brother has a different favorite – Sholom Aleichem in the same album.
    Great songs top to bottom.

    I think t’s really great when the velt feels such a positive reaction to real Chabad performers like benny and 8th day, who never try to hide their chabadness, and on the contrary, wear that badge with such pride, chevre who mamish bring a chasidishe chein to the frum world that they are as of yet mostly unfamiliar with, but when they get a taste of it, they just know that they love it. Taamu ureu ki toiv havayeh in action!
    Keep it up. I just love watching it happen!

    It would help to have the words in English and Hebrew along with the song. I like it very much, but even though I can catch most of it, some eludes me. Please add subtitles.

    AWESOME!!!!!
