Why This Night?


This Night: 
A Kol Hai Passover

Help us fly even higher!

This Night is Kol Hai's debut studio album of original melodies by Rabbi Shir Yaakov Feit and Renée Finkelstein (aka Radharani). The words of This Night are drawn from the Passover holiday but speak to timeless universal divine modes including joy, ancestral connection, gratitude, celebration, healing, and intimacy.

The album includes the masterful musicianship of cellist Noah Hoffeld, bansuri flutist Steve Gorn, clarinetist Seth Lieberman, and keyboardist Julian Waterfall Pollack. Learn the stories behind the songs of This Night with our digital liner notes.

Here's where you come in

Help us complete the album and spread this music far and wide. We want you to be a part of the magic that is Kol Hai. And this is just the beginning... we have literally hundreds of songs to share and so many ideas for weaving community around music, meditation, celebration, and presence. Join us today and be a part of this offering! 

Perks include a songbook to share these melodies with your community, a dedication to a loved one, Executive Producer credit, and more. Plus, all who contribute at any amount are invited to our Second Night Seder.

We'll be celebrating the album with a Second Night Seder
