ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Rahel Jaskow's CD, "Day of Rest," consists mostly of songs for the Jewish Sabbath. Expertly recorded and mixed by fellow CD Baby artist Ray Scudero of Argaman Studios in Israel, Rahel's disc pioneers a new genre in Jewish music.

Rahel has recorded nearly every song in multiple voices, without musical accompaniment, to give the effect of a small a-cappella choir.

Rahel's clear, bell-like voice and harmonious vocal arrangements guide the listener to a quiet, tranquil place and make the spirit soar.

Although the songs are mostly in Hebrew (except "Lullaby in C," which is sung both in English and in Rahel's Hebrew translation), their message is clear to speakers of any language: to take the time to rest and refresh ourselves.

"Ms. Jaskow's voice quality is rich, enchanting and extremely appealing as an Israeli-style 'traditional folk' artist." -- Judith Pinnolis, Jewish Music WebCenter

Rahel appears as a guest artist on Hanna Yaffe's "Lullabies from Jerusalem," Shuly Nathan's "Open Roads" and "Mostly Carlebach," and Ray Scudero's "With the Help of Angels." Check 'em out -- they're all available right here at CD Baby!

spiritually uplifting on any day of the week

Vanessa Ochs

Keeps my spirit both grounded and soaring
You know, I am a great fan of yours. On Sundays when I work alone in my office, I play your CD nearly all day long, and it keeps my spirit both grounded and soaring.

Vi Rasche

Music to stir the soul!
This is some of the most beautifully sung Shabbat music I have ever heard! Our whole family loves it and it is played every day in our home. Rahel has a voice kissed by G-d!

Nachman Rosenberg

the most beautiful vocal music

Ms. Jaskow's voice is beautiful. This disk contains the most sublime vocal music imaginable, both when carefully listened to and also quietly as background music. It conveys a lovely sense of peace and calm. We all love it and listen to it repeatedly.

Sam Orbaum

I'm stunned!
Rahel, I was absolutely stunned! This is fabulous music! I just finished listening to your CD, and noticed that I went through a variety of moods: sad at first, then aroused, then for the most part wonderfully calmed -- and all the while, amazed at your gorgeous voice.

I am going to listen to this again and again; it's going to be the music I put on when I have guests over; and I'd like to know how to buy several copies -- what a splendid gift this will make!

Adriana Horowitz-marin

It's such a beautiful song that it makes me cry and miss my friends in israel wh
It's an awesome cd that bring sweet sounds to your ears and to your spirit and makes you feel as if you are right near the kotel in jerusalem listening to the beautiful prayers sung a loud outside.


Dale Baranowski

The voice of angels
My son-in-law, Yoel, came to our home from an army furlough exhausted and went to bed. The next morning my wife was working in the kitchen adjacent to the room where Yoel slept and was playing Ms. Jaskow's CD. That morning Yoel shuffled into the kitchen and remarked: "I had a
wonderful dream where angels were singing to me, and when I woke up I realized that the angels I heard in my dream were not in my head but were actually coming from this CD. This woman's voice is incredibly beautiful." Our whole family agrees that Ms. Jaskow's singing on this CD is nothing less than angelic.

Susan Jaskow Fitzpatrick

One voice, so much harmony.
The vibrancy... The talent... The crystal clarity of a singular voice in harmony, soothing and sweet. What a magnificent accomplishment. I can't wait for the next CD!

Joe Aminoff

One of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard
I just heard your disc. I am speechless! You have one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard! Many singers don't know how to use vibrato, but you use that beautiful, rapid vibrato to perfection.

Judith Pinnolis

Rahel's voice is rich, enchanting and appealing.
