Watch: Carlebach Shabbos Medley – Avrumy Straus


The last decade has shown an explosion of Carlebach style kumzits singers. While previously most of them were litvishe, now there has been an influx of Chassidish performers. One standout individual, is Avrumy Straus. Avrumy is a chassidishe yungerman who was inspired by Yitzchak Fuchs and Reb Shlomo carlebach. He performs at Sheva Brochos, Bar Mitzvahs and simchas of all kind. Straus has always loved music especially Kumzits style, which gives people a more spiritual connection. Avrumy has been playing since the young age of seven years old. After performing for the last few years, Avrumy decided it was time to broaden his horizons and release a video showcasing his talent.

He is joined by keyboardist Efroyim Berkowitz and percussionist Shia Beck. This set was performed live at a fundraising event in Monroe, NY for the organization Ezer L’shabbos. This set includes the popular songs Git Shabbes, Reb Shlomo’s Sholoim Aleichem, Kiddush and Shabbos Zemiros. Avrumy’s voice coupled with his musical friends performance will warm you during this stormy weather. One can’t stop swaying to the music as they watch this mesmerizing performance.

  1. Amazing
    If Shlomo would come back to this world for one day he would be amazed at how many people follow his music. When he was alive he did not believe that chassidim and Yeshivash love him. Only in the last month of his life did I reveal how his music is played at weddings in williamsburg. He for the first time excepted it. This was a week before he died.

    • if he would come back would he be banned like open orthodox? or is their a double standerd. put down the childish music and grow up already! not everything is about feeling “spiritual”. people doing drugs also feel “spiritual”.
