Yeshiva Boys Choir: Ah, Ah, Ah, Ashrei (4-Minute Video)

Wow, this is really adorable. I got all teary with nachas watching these young boys singing their hearts out about dwelling in Hashem’s house, and thinking of the vapid corrupted nonsense secular singers in secular music videos would be getting all excited about. Ashreinu mah tov chelkeinu, TRULY!!!

  1. Sigh.

    1. Baruch Hashem – the kids are sweet, very sweet! They should live long, healthy, good Jewish lives.

    2. My younger boys thought it was cool (way cool) that there are no grownups to be seen in the whole thing; the video makes it look like the kids were involved in the production, not only the singing.

    3. Certainly “ashrei yoshvei beitecha” is something to sing about!

    4. Do you not find it at all disturbing to think about:
    (a) the number of hours those boys must have spent making a music video? (instead of learning Torah, or playing basketball, or helping at home…or something more “wholesome”?)
    (b) the commercialization of Jewish culture and of Jewish kids? Would you want the faces of your sweet kids on youtube, even singing a holy Jewish song?

    5. I don’t want to spoil anyone’s pleasure in the song, really, but I do think the price of these things is something we should give serious consideration.

    Gmar Tov =)

    • As far as I understand, this is part of their school. Not only is it good publicity (for the school AND the Jewish faith), but it is them doing things that they love. You can see it on their faces how much the love YHWH, and it comes out in the songs. Even if it is upbeat. I would imagine that their families are alright with this publicity, because other groups such as this one are in the area: The Maccabeats and Standfour (both from Yeshiva- the school), and six13 is also from that area.

      Personally, as a christian studying and embracing my Hebrew roots, I find their music uplifting and encouraging!

      It is a sacrifice, but in their other videos, they are still having a childhood, and I’m sure they still need parent’s permission slips to go on a concert! 🙂

    “My younger boys thought it was cool (way cool) that there are no grownups to be seen in the whole thing; the video makes it look like the kids were involved in the production, not only the singing.”

    The video WAS produced by the kids. Some of the boys were taught exactly what to do, and they did it all. The only thing the adults did was teach the boys and supervise.

  3. SO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I didn’t like it so much either. It wasn’t like the YouTube videos of boys choirs in Israel – like Nachman Seltzer’s boys. The boys weren’t “aidel” at all – it was wild and it was weird that it was done in a shul in front of the aaron hakodesh.

  5. I think its great. Children need to have a creative outlet also. Creativity is very wholesome. But I do agree that it might have its own consequences. But only because of how “commercialized it is”. I hate that its on youtube. I don’t even email friends in other countries pictures of my child … But these boys are very “aidel” they also happen to have personalities and they let them show. There was every type of boy there, sweet, spunky, wild, funny, shy … what brings them together is their love of music. Nothing wrong with that.

    Love this video. The talent that these boys have shown in making this video is off the chart. I’m sure the Rabbi at the Yeshiva approved of this otherwise it would not have been filmed where it was.
