Iraqi Jewish Songs for Special Occasions, shabbat and Holidays נוסח יהודי בבל. Rabbi Ovadia's parents were from Iraq, before moving to the State of Israel. From a young age, he was gifted with being taught the many beautiful tunes of his ancestors. These were used in the synagogue on Shabbat and Jewish Holidays, at home, as well as at happy and sad occasions.
He has recorded this treasure trove of melodies for all those who want to learn and those who want to listen. His hope is that these tunes will connect the past to the future, and to enrich and inspire a new generation, who will carry the torch forward.

Amazing Revival of Iraqi Jewish Tunes
Rabbi Ovadia is absolutley amazing. He took time to record Iraqi tunes for the Jewish holidays, Lifecycle events, Prayers, Songs and more. He is preserving the heritage of the many Jews of Iraqi Origin! Thanks Rabbi! He also has enlightening classes on iTunes in a bunch of different Podcast shows. WoW!!
