Singer Benny Friedman’s worldwide hit song about Jewish pride just hit 10 Million Views on YouTube, an accomplishment very few videos in the small Jewish music community achieve.
“It is a most beautiful thing to see that a song about fearless, unabashed Jewish pride really has struck a nerve with so many people all over the world. It is a great Zechus to be a part of it,” Benny Friedman told COLlive.
The song has surpassed any of the previous Benny Friedman songs, including “Yesh Tikvah,” Benny’s first song to hit one million views, currently at over 8 million views.
“In a world where antisemitism is on the rise once again, and in many countries we have seen increasing attacks on Jewish people, it’s more important than ever to maintain this pride,” Sruly Meyer, producer of the song, told COLlive.
