Rahel is a woman of great faith and she can cover many emotional bases through the language of music alone. A gifted, soulful songwriter and healing artist, she has a lot to say, and she says it well with a beautiful, diverse, collection of songs.
"My work as a cantorial soloist inspired me to write new music to prayers that are included in our daily worship and ritual practice. Please introduce, sing and share these new liturgical works with your community. Be sure to mention my name and give proper credit me when you do!! Your feedback is welcome."
“Music has always been integral to my life. I was exposed to music at an early age. I studied solfeges, music theory and appreciation and learned to play on the piano, recorder and flute, but it was the acoustic guitar that was to become my main mode of musical expression. I’ve been an active working musician since 1976. I enjoy collaborating with other musicians and artists the most! Music has introduced me to worlds I might never have immersed in otherwise. The experience of living in two countries, Israel and the USA, each with a multitude of ethnic and cultural influences, contributes greatly to my composing and songwriting. It is through music that I experience joy and happiness and by way of music that I facilitate healing, growth and joy in others.”
