Album Notes
Shir Harmony (Rochelle Potak and Bob Emerman) is based in the New York metro area and provides a broad range of musical entertainment. Performing both original compositions and adapted works, they specialize in Jewish music, both contemporary and traditional. Each engagement is customized to best fit the occasion. Their material enhances Shabbat and holiday services, as well as life-cycle and other special events. Their unique musical blend features accompaniment on keyboard, piano or guitar. They regularly conduct musical Shabbat services at several assisted living facilities and often perform at special events both Jewish and secular. Recently, they marked the occasion of their 1000th performance.

Both Rochelle and Bob are prominent members of their synagogue choir and are active in Hava Nashira, the Jewish Songleaders' network. Rochelle is a music educator and song leader at two synagogues. A member of The Guild of Temple Musicians and The Children's Music Network, she has also been a pianist for the Music Institute of Long Island and has taught music and movement to preschoolers at the Mid-Island JCC, the JCC of Bayside, Beth Hagan at Temple Israel and North Shore Synagogue. She has composed or arranged much of what Shir Harmony performs. Bob has been conducting services as a lay leader for many years and has an extensive knowledge of the many forms of Jewish music.

Their first CD, "Grant Us Joy and Blessing", is a collection of original works composed by Rochelle. It has been well received and acclaimed:

“achingly beautiful” – cantorial soloist, Washington, D.C.
“beautiful songs and singing” – cantorial soloist, Boston area
“What a delight! We love your CD and it has already given us many hours of pleasure.” – congregational member
“The melodies are great. They reflect the spirit of the liturgy . . . .” –Craig Taubman, recording artist and composer of Jewish music



to write a review

Bruce Hirsch

Prayerful -- the beauty of the music is the depth of sincerity from the artists
The beauty of this CD is the depth of feeling of the artists. The artists transform liturgical text into prayer. The profound spirituality is almost painful in its power. The listener is moved and transformed.


Music that's soothing to the soul
This is a collection of gentle songs that will speak to your soul and calm your spirit
