Shuli Rand from Ushpizin's First Album Online - Interview
Shuli Rand, of Ushpizin fame, has come out with his own album which I have seen a couple of very good reviews about. It is called "Nekudah Tova," "Good Point," and can already be ordered online. (You can listen to clips of the songs at that link.) Yasher koach to YK's Jewish Music Forum for introducing me to this information and for preliminarily reviewing the album. If anyone out there has this album, I'd be interested in hearing about it.
I don't know much about Shuli Rand besides the fact that he was a big secular movie actor in Israel after going off the derech at age 18. After a successful career, he was Chozer B'Teshuva and became a Breslover Chosid. Below is an interesting interview with him on secualr Israeli television where he explains, among other thing, how he came up with the idea for the album cover, pictured above.
