Bereshit – “Genesis” CD
A collection of 16 songs by Ehud Manor, one of Israel’s finest entertainers, who often performed with Naomi Schemer.In 1998 Ehud Manor became an Israel Prize laureate for his unique contribution to Israeli songwriting.
Ehud Manor completed a BA in Psychology and English Literature at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, studied Communications at New York University and held an MA from the University of Cambridge, UK. Only a week before his sudden death at age 64 of a heart attack in April 2005, Ehud Manor was awarded an Honorary Doctorate by the University of Bar Ilan, for his outstanding contribution to and creativity in Hebrew song. In an interview subsequent to the award ceremony, on Israel's Galei Tzahal, he said that he had written over a thousand songs, but never actually counted them - the count had been made by friends in 2001, which meant that the figure required updating. He said that he was less concerned about the past than what he was going to do in the future, and looked forward to continuing his writing. Sadly, he and his talent were taken from us prematurely.
