Back in the studio for the first time in nearly five years to record an album of entirely new music, Taubman looked to build upon the elements that made Friday Night Live so successful while incorporating new inspirations that he’s gathered over the years. The songs on the album, including the title track, the rousing “L’Cha Dodi,” and the sweetly pensive “Love Your God,” reflect much of what has made Taubman’s musical Shabbat services a worldwide phenomenon - drawing in the congregation close and bringing them to their feet, often within the same melody.
"Listening to Holy Ground, pretty much non-stop. Had a good cry with Y'did Nefesh and Love your God. And Jammin to Ayn Od. I am so moved by this album" - Cantor Rosalie Boxt
"You are a musical genius! Holy Ground is spectacular and moving" - Sanford Climan
"A follow-up to his rockin' religious hit, Friday Night Love, Holy Ground breathes new life into Shabbat prayers, with a Latin-flavored 'V'Shamru' and a saxophone-soaked 'Aleynu.' 15 bucks is a small price to pay to see the family doing a conga line to 'L'Cha Dodi" - yoyenta.com
