For years, singer Eitan Katz has had a dream: to bring the warmth of a hassidic farbrengen - the kind of lively get-together Chabad hassidim throughout the world are known for.

Now, his long-awaited new album will do just that.

"This project was one I've been waiting to do for a very long time.  I've always wanted to do a live album, one where you could really capture the live atmosphere, and more importantly the connection between the band and the crowd," Katz told Arutz Sheva.

"I planned this event for about six months, put my heart and soul into it. I was totally blown away by the amount of people that came out. More striking was the incredible spectrum of types of guys who came. From Israeli hareidim to completely unaffiliated, it was wonderful to see so many people unite, dance, sing together."
