Gates of Redemption

Gates of Redemption Album Cover

  To effectively repair a broken world, one must focus within. The blemished individual cannot perfect the collective. But where to begin?

Gates of Redemption is a concept album that attempts to answer this question with a guided journey through four Gates. First, without Faith, there is nothing! He who does not truly believe that the Creator will redeem mankind thereby rejects his own essential purpose. Upon developing complete faith and yearning in anticipation of the fulfillment of the Creator's promise, we then proceed to deepen our sense of Gratitude for the endless blessings He bestows on the entire world. A father is more-easily forgiving to the thankful son than to the unappreciative one.

   This brings us to the third gate: Repentance - the great transformation emanating from pure, heartfelt resolve. As we accept the yoke of the kingdom of heaven, in merit of the immaculate faith of the murdered & burned, and the binder & the bound, we arrive at the true Redemption (of the individual & the collective), as well as the revelation of the truth of the divine unity. On that glorious day, G-d will be one and His name one. The great Shofar horn will sound across the entire earth and we will once again praise our Creator with our many instruments on the rooftops of Jerusalem - Hallelukah!

  This years-in-the-making project is a first of its kind in the field of Jewish music. Fusing numerous genres of contemporary styles, it is an emotive work - a concept album that tells a story arranged in thematic chapters - four Gates, leading the listener through the process of growth in Faith, Gratitude & Repentance and, ultimately, through the climactic transition and arrival at the great Redemption of mankind, as well as the individual’s personal redemption of self-reflection, resolve and a passionate bond with the Creator. The result, with G-d's help, is an intense spiritual experience meant to arouse an inspirational awakening.
