Miri Israeli

Story and Musical Performance

Miri Israeli is an American-born Sanzer chassid who has become a world renowned songwriter, with hits such as “Ima, Tagidi Li,” “Yesh Tikva” and “Ani Maamin B’Nisim.” She composes songs for Yaakov Shwekey, Ari Goldwag, Avraham Fried and Benny Friedman, among others. In accordance with a rabbinical ruling she received years ago, Miri will not put out any recordings of herself singing… and she will talk about how that itself led to her meteoric rise as an in-demand songwriter and performer for women-only audiences worldwide.

Miri will close the Temech conference by sharing her story as well as a special performance of her music.
