Reb Moshe Tzvi Goldman z”l


moshe-goldmanIt is with great sadness that we report the passing of Reb Moshe Tzvi Goldman z”l, renowned Bobover baal menagein and producer of Camp Shalvah Boys Choir.

While the world changed and the sounds of music did as well, Reb Moshe was one of the few who still infused his music with the same warmth and genuine feeling that existed in the music of old, not succumbing to the pressures of the times. It is no wonder that dozens of his songs have become staples in Yiddishe homes across the world, whether it is his “Boruch Keil Elyon” sung on Shabbos or “Pnei L’Elbon,” a stirring melody that pulls at one’s heartstrings.

Several months ago, Reb Moshe released his last album, Camp Shalvah #19, titled “Chomas Aish.”

Reb Moshe was 58.

The levaya will be held this morning at 9:30 a.m. at the Bobover Bais Medrash on 15th Avenue at 48th Street.

Yehi zichro boruch.

  1. BD”E
    Klal Yisroel lost a true Baal menagen a warm composer that composed nigunim wiyh a Yidishe Taam (taste). Reb Moishes nigunim were EIDEL & Beautiful with varemkeit that a peson was able to understant the meaning of the words & to benefit from the Nigun.
    We lost the taste from nigunim of the ALTE heim & Reb Moishe A”H kept to to the old tradition YZ”B

  2. He composed a Yiddish song call “The Bletttel”
    The song was about a little leave that was attached to the tree . The leave envied the other leaves that were not attatched and were free and able to fly around. Then one day the wind rips him off of the tree and he soon begins to realize that he losing all sustenance and nutrients provided by the tree he was attached to.

    He drew an analogy from this to the Torah being the tree of life where we get our spiritual needs from everyday of our live.
