“Rabbi Jake” Czuper came out with a music video for his first single, “Smile,” off the new album “Hashem is Awesome.” The music video has more than a 1,000 views on social media, and features Atlantans such as Rabbi Daniel and Bluma Estriecher, Aaron Hartman and “tons of amazing kids,” Rabbi Jake told the AJT.
The video was directed by Meira Merlis, senior writer/producer at Warner Media. “My goal with the video is to spread as much light and smiles as possible in these trying times.” Some of the lyrics include: “Be a big light, shine your light.”
In the recent past, Rabbi Jake appeared in virtual concerts, including Israel, Montreal, Brooklyn, Pennsylvania and Maryland. He had a rolling concert on wheels for over 500 families over Sukkot in Toco Hills, social-distanced Chanukah concerts, a community concert in Dunwoody, a birthday party and virtual concert for the Allentown, Pa., Jewish community.
The rabbi’s new album is online and in stores and features the Atlanta Jewish Boys Choir on two tracks. The choir was featured at Dr. Eva Schloss’s event at Georgia Tech last year and at the Atlanta Jewish Life Festival.
