The Recorded Sound Archives (RSA) is a unit of FAU Libraries Special Collections department. We are located in the Wimberly Library on FAU's Boca Raton campus.

Originally established in 2002 as a small project dedicated to the preservation of recorded Jewish music, it has matured into a robust digitization operation for all types of sound recordings.

Notes The special selections contained in this sing-along album, represent a significant breakthrough in Israeli-American recordings. Not only are twelve outstanding “hits” of Israeli folk music brought together in one single album, but for the first time most of them are sung in English, as well. The adaptations are by Shimon Gewirtz, and those familiar with the Hebrew lyrics will receive an added dimension of pleasure and understanding.

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.
