Notes This eclectic combination of songs by Ron Eliran covers the musical and emotional gamut from happy tunes to songs that touch the heart. This album of Chassidic favorites, new Israeli hits and Eliran originals includes: Sim Sim Shalom; Rumania, Rumania; and a very inspirational rendition of We Are the World.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
