ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"It lifts you up and is a great way to learn." Chanie Greene, co-director of Chabad of Rochester

"A beautiful walking meditation. I recommend it highly" - Marcie S., co-director Hidden Universe


The name "Sparks of Holiness" refers to the special spark or essence of Godliness that is in everything. The ancient Kabbalist Rabbi Isaac Luria taught that every object, force and phenomenon in existence has a spark of holiness within it -- a pinpoint of divinity that constitutes its soul, its spiritual essence and design. This spark embodies the divine desire that the thing exist, and its function within G-d's overall purpose for creation. When a person utilizes something to serve his Creator, he penetrates its shell of mundanity, revealing and realizing its divine essence.

Tara's easy upbeat style leaves the listener uplifted and relaxed. Always engaging, her songs range from country to Key West to jazz and even some "rap" with a danceable latin beat. Easy to understand yet meaningful lyrics appeal to listeners looking for a thoughtful journey or just a fun melody to hum along to. The lyrics are straight from the Torah with some Chassidic and Talmudic interpretations weaved in.

Part 2 features wonderful children's singing accompanied by guitar, flute and other acoustic instruments. It offers the kind of musical experience people have been sharing in throughout the centuries. Children will relate to the gentle and beautiful sounds and words as they quietly sing along while playing or resting. Adults will enjoy an inspiring and uplifting musical experience. The English and Hebrew words create an easy and fun way to learn.

In the Jewish Rosh Hashanah/Yom Kippur prayerbook it is written: "Prayer, Returning to closeness with God, and Charity reverse the decree" - the goodness in the world can increase one person at a time and have far reaching effects much like the ripples in a stream. If you enjoy this music, donate a little extra to a charity of your choice or do an extra act of kindness for another -pass the kindness along...

If you represent a hospital or a hospice, military or school, contact us and CDs will sent to you for free.

In loving memory of Sally Fuchs, the best mother in the world


Lyrics:
words and music by Tara Mizrachi

"HASHEM* IS GOOD TO ALL"

* ("Hashem" is the Hebrew word for "the Name." It refers to God's infinite name.)

A leaf floats softly in the air, flowing to and fro
It glides past weeping willows, past mighty pines and oaks
The leaf lands softly on the ground, the journey's still not done
It's traveled so far from its home in the sky to shelter a small worm from the sun.

Hashem is good to all. His compassion shelters all His creatures (Psalm 145)
He shelters you and me.

A sea shell travels far and wide with the ocean as its wings
carried along by the waves it rolls, it glides and it swings.
A shell lands softly on the sand - it's voyage done it seems.
It's traveled so far to just the right spot to give shelter to the seed of a tree.

Hashem is good to all ...

A bride remembers her childhood times laughing loud with friends.
She dances, sings and learns a lot. The childhood's at an end.
She sits down softly on the ground so as not to be too far
from the crying of a child in need. She shelters a gift from heaven in her arms.
(c) Tara Mizrachi



"LOVE HASHEM*
(words and music by Tara Mizrachi)

As I live through my life and travel down the roads
I'm not often sure where to turn
Climbing up tall hills, hiking grassy meadows
Along the way this much I've learned

If we love Hashem with all our heart
love Hashem with all our soul
love Hashem with all the strength that we have (Deut. 6)
we'll never be too far from our home.

Veahavta Hashem Elokeycha V'chol levav'cha
oo'v'chol nafsh'cha, oo'v'chol meyo dey cha, Veahavta Hashem (Deut. 6)

As I follow HIs path, help others who are in need
Love my neighbor as myself. Be humble, not full of pride,
listen to what's deep inside -
with the heart, soul & strength Hashem has given to me to...

love Hashem with all your heart, love Hashem with all your soul,
love Hashem with all the strength that you have,
we'll never be too far from our home...
(c) Tara Mizrachi



"EVERYTHING HASHEM DOES IS FOR THE GOOD"
(words and music by Tara Mizrachi)

Kol ma al rachimona ovid le tav ovid
(aramaic transliteration from the Talmud)

("positive rap")
Be happy everyday. Hashem He knows the way.
Do not be afraid. Be blessed in every way.
Live with love and hope and faith
(c) Tara Mizrachi



"SURELY GOODNESS"
Psalm 23
(from the Book of Psalms-Tehillim)

Surely good and kindness shall follow me all the days of my life.
And I shall dwell in the house of Hashem for long days.

Ach tov v'chesed Yir d'foony kal yamey chayay
V'shavti b'veit Hashem l'orech yamim



"SONG WITHIN"
(words and music by Tara Mizrachi)

The song within your heart plays again and again.
Adding harmonies, bells, rhythms and chimes.
The song you live plays again and again.

Sing of helping... and it goes round and round and round
verses repeating... and it will last a whole life long hearing your song.

Sing of praying... and it goes round and round and round
verses repeating... and it will last a whole life long hearing your song.

Be a part of the ocean tide. Be a part of the sweet summer light
Be a part of the music of life and take flight...
to the heavens with a song in your heart ... and take flight.

Sing of kindness ... and it goes round and round and round ...
verses repeating... and it will last a whole life long hearing your song.

Sing of love... and it goes round and round and round
verses repeating ... and it will last a whole life long hearing your song.
(c) Tara Mizrachi



"IVDU"
(Psalm 100)
(from the Torah)

Ivdu ... et Hashem b'simcha
Ivdu ... serve Hashem with joy



"GAM KI ELECH"
(Psalm 23)
(from the Torah)

Though I walk through the valley overshadowed by death
I will fear no evil for You are with me.





"LEV TAHOR'
(Psalm 51)
(from the Torah)

Create for me a pure heart Hashem and a spirit that is true
and new within me. Cast me not away from Your presence,
and Your holy spirit take not from me.

.


"KELI ATA"
(Psalm 118)
(from the Torah)

You are Hashem and I will give thanks to You.
My Hashem I will exalt (elevate) You.




"HODU"
(Psalm 118)
(from the Torah)

Give thanks to Hashem for He is good.
For His kindness endures forever.
