Your music has made such a difference in the last few years. Every year, I add in more of your songs, and it creates so much joy and togetherness to have people sing these words to familiar melodies.

Just wanted to say that your Passover songs to the tunes of pop songs were the perfect thing to bring the family back after the meal for a modern Nirtzah. We had a bunch printed out and everybody got a packet with their Haggaddah. It was the best.
