Notes This album is a collection of upbeat, contemporary songs about Jewish history and tradition. When Fran Avni adds her beautiful voice to the children's chorus the result is a joyous expression of celebration. The delightful songs and narrative bring to life the main characters of each holiday story and give them unique personalities.
