Album Notes
Magevet is Yale University's premier a cappella group dedicated to singing Jewish, Hebrew, and Israeli music. Founded in 1993, we are known in Jewish communities around the world for our unusual, sometimes daring arrangements of traditional and modern melodies and our sweet blend of voices.

Magevet recordings provide an exciting and fresh taste of Jewish music spanning from Renaissance choral masterpieces to Yemenite and Yiddish folksongs to modern Israeli pop hits. Our listeners come away inspired by the sense of pride for our diverse heritage that we convey with each song we sing. Magevet is distinctive among Jewish a cappella groups for the diversity and musical sophistication of our repertoire.

Magevet's yearly tour schedule gives us the opportunity to take our excitement around the globe. We perform in the Northeast throughout the year, but during school breaks we share our unique sound with communities further from the Yale campus. Recent tours have included performances in London's Westminster Abbey and the world's largest freshwater aquarium in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Magevet means "towel" in Hebrew. While a number of scurrilous and interesting explanations have been offered for the origin of our name, please bear in mind that Magevet was conceived of in a sauna.

Magevet is a tax-exempt nonprofit group. All proceeds from CD sales go towards subsidizing the group's activities.

Nathaniel Black

A Very Talented Group of Young Up-and-Comers
I stumbled onto Magevet when one of their songs came on from my friend's playlist, and from that moment on, I was hooked. Really, the prowess demonstrated in the arrangements and the quite apparent talent seen in the group was more than enough to warrant a purchase of the album, but the group's non-profit status made me feel like I was contributing both to the group and the greater 'world community'. Highly recommended, even if you don't understand Hebrew, it's beautiful.


Excellent Value
Magevet shows off their talent for great harmonizing and wonderful arrangement choices. It's a beautiful record, one me and my kids can enjoy.


Great vocals and harmonizing! Tradition comes alive!

This is very different from the other Magevet albums - a lot less harmonizing because it is a collection of "after dinner" songs. So if you're looking for albums purely based on musicality the other Magevet albums are a better bet. But, it's still fun to sing along to. I love Tzur Mishelo, sounds like the Jewish version of Gangsta Rap. The Sloop John B D'ror Yik-ra brings back memories of Shabbat at the Slifka Center.

Susan Gordon

Thoroughly enjoyable
Excellent Shabbat songs-lots of favourites and a great singalong factor- harmonised just even better than we remember from Shabbat at college and bryond.
Can't wait to use with my class.
