Rabbi Ruvi New, right, co-director of Chabad of East Boca Raton, Fla., and a sought-after teacher and speaker, fulfilled a lifelong dream by making “Storm the World,” an album featuring 12 original compositions. He's pictured here with producer Bentzi Marcus.
It took 23 years to bring his vision to fruition, but Rabbi Ruvi New is sharing the Lubavitcher Rebbe’s teachings through music in a new album, Storm the World.
Produced and arranged by Bentzi Marcus of the popular Jewish rock band 8th Day, the recently released Storm the World features 14 new compositions performed by New with guest appearances by Benny Friedman, Yossi Green, Bentzi Marcus, Eli Marcus and Shmuel Marcus. New, co-director of East Boca Raton, began writing lyrics to perpetuate the Rebbe’s teachings shortly after his passing in 1994, and the songs carry messages with themes that he hopes will resonate with Jews worldwide.
