- A Shabbos Farbreng – Beri Weber – Like many other Jewish music fans, you may have been following Beri Weber throughout his career, from album to album, from inspirational message to inspiration message. Beri has gone far beyond an artist who just releases music and performs. Now you might be wondering what it would be like to spend a Shabbos with Beri. Well wonder no more!

- The Vocal Collection 4 – MRM has done it again! After the popularity of The Vocal Collection and the follow-up releases of volumes 2 and 3, MRM Music has released volume 4. This album is packed with 17 tracks featuring artists such as Shloime Gertner, Amiran Dvir, Gershon Veroba, Mendy J, Shalsheles Junior, Nochi Krohn, and more! This album contains the perfect mix of slower and quicker and tracks and has the perfect blend of styles and genres to keep you satisfied throughout Sefiras HaOmer.
- Bezras Hashem – Baruch Naftel – Following the releases of Baruch Naftel’s debut and follow up single’s “Bezras Hashem,” and “Besoros Tovos,” Bezras Hashem – Acapella takes a different direction. After hearing so much positive feedback from fans and friends about his debut single, Baruch decided that a version should be released that can be enjoyed no matter what time of the year it is. Another addition to this track is the feature of star child soloist Nati Broyde. This song was composed by Tzali Stern with the acapella arrangement done by Hillel Kapnick.
- Once Upon a Story: Sefiras HaOmer, Pesach Sheini and Lag BaOmer – For years, children’s music has focused primarily on the more popular holidays in the Jewish calendar (Chanukkah, Purim, Pesach, Rosh Hashanah and Sukkos). The producers of Once Upon a Story decided that the time has come to release a CD for children discussing the meaning behind the days of Sefiras HaOmer, Pesach Sheini, and Lag BaOmer, along with a number of inspirational and meaningful stories whose themes reflect that time. This CD is sure to be a great way to help children understand the things we do ( and don’t do) throughout Sefiras HaOmer and beyond!
