The Machon Le’Hora’ah has decided a dispute about who owns the name “Uncle Moishy,” and who can perform the songs that the performer has sung for 40 years.
Since the ’70s, Uncle Moishy and his Brooklyn-based production company, Suki & Ding Productions, have produced 22 albums and 14 videos.
Tanenbaum then moved to anther production company, Sonic Duo Productions, and continues to perform and record as Uncle Moishy.
Meanwhile, Suki & Ding found a new Uncle Moishy, Rabbi Yossi Berktin, a long-time Toronto children’s musician and entertainer who goes by the moniker “Rabbi B.”
In a ruling delivered last October and clarified in the last few weeks, the bais din found that while the songs and music of Uncle Moishy belong to Suki & Ding, both parties may use the stage name “Uncle Moishy.” Read more at CJN News.
