Who is Meleha ? The singer with a golden voice...

Very young, she starts singing on stage in Lyon and shares her amazing talent
with the best jazz bands of the area...
Her meeting with the very famous producer "Andre Manoukian" takes her,
10 years later, all the way to Paris at EMI France where she records several albums.
Among them, a duet with the international star "Gino Vannelli"...
During her path to fame, she often gets to appear on TV (TF1,M6,MTV etc...).
She also opens for many famous singers such as Michel Jonasz, Michel Fugain,
Sacha Distel...
Until the day where she attends a Tania class given by Rav Gurewitz in Lyon.

From then on, she decides to share her message through her songs with jewish
women ONLY...
By "hashgacha pratit" , she meets a few days later the great author-composer musician,
Sydney El Ancry.
They start working together relentlessly... Meleha is born .
He writes her first song "Imma". It's a success. Then comes the hit songs "You my friend"
and " Shabbat Shalom"...
The idea is to send a message that will reach and touch every jewish women and their

It’s not often that concerts are organized for the young girls and women of the Jewish community in Casablanca, making the performance by the spiritual singer Méléha all that more special. JN1 has come to Casablanca to meet with Méléha and to speak to her about her first trip to Morocco and her very special concert.

Named after her Algerian grandmother, Méléha was born and raised in France. This was Méléha’s first trip to Morocco where she gave a lively performance that brought together hundreds of women for a night of music and dancing.

Méléha, singer:

"So I came from Paris and was born in Lyon and it’s the first time I am here in Morocco thanks to the invitation of the Rabbi’s wife Chana Banon and her husband. I am very happy.

The goal is to have them leave from this concert with lots of emotion and lots of happiness, that is my goal."

Méléha is considered to be a strong role model to many young Jewish women not only for promoting sisterhood but also for changing her life as an up and coming pop star in France to becoming a spiritual singer creating music about women’s daily and mystical life. JN1 spoke to Méléha about the events that led up to her unique shows.

Meleha, singer:

"One day I was attending a class with Rabbi Gorevitch in Lyon and he gave me the envy to return to Judaism."

Méléha, singer, speaking to audience:
"It was a Torah Class. People said you absolutely have to come listen to him. So I arrived with my red hair and black leather jacket and mini skirt and leather boots. I entered and they looked at me funny and I didn’t understand why at the beginning. The class was about Tzniut, modesty and clothing laws."

Meleha, singer:

"After that day I stopped everything. I stopped singing for men and women. I understood that the Torah was important. I dedicated my life and mission to sing only for women. For 24 years I have sung all over the world for all the countries of the world."

The women attending Méléha’s concert seemed to enjoy the festivities and the party lasted well into the night. JN1 spoke to some concert attendees about what made this concert special and why events of this nature are important to help keep the Jewish community in close contact.

Sarah Adida, concert attendee:

"It’s been an amazing moment and we are 300 Jewish women in Casablanca which is really a rare thing to gather such a number of women. There was a very good atmosphere with this singer and she sang beautiful songs about children and Hashem and religion and the world and everything."

Hannah Elharar, concert attendee:

"It was really good because here it doesn’t happen all the time so we had fun.
I think she is an example to us to be more into religion and she was a star and she left everything to be religious because she knew it was the best."

Esther Wizman, concert attendee:

"I think the concert was very great, she has a beautiful voice, the music was very diverse and the tunes are good she is beautiful and she danced on stage so she knows how to entertain her audience.

It’s really hard to bring all the Jewish community together but only Chana Banon can do that she did a great job here."

The concert by Méléha was attended by many women who came with their friends and also met new people at the event. Many are hoping for more events such as this one in the future. To catch up with Méléha’s tour dates in the US and in Europe, you can check out her website.

01 O Rebbe

Lyrics and music Sydney Elancry
Translation and adaptation by Déborah Partouche

Like the rain drops on the sea
Like the stars light up the skies
Beautiful stones paving my way

Like the words that echo in our soul
Like the rainbow up above
Like the music in our hearts
You're still with us


Oh Rebbe Rebbe Rebbe
Ten lanou braha
You are our rebbe, oh Rebbe
Oh Rebbe Rebbe Rebbe
Ten lanou braha
Oh Rabeinou beh'ol
Maasse yadeinou

For the children in the park
For the parents in the dark
Your hand is the one held out

To leave us without a doubt
Our emouna is so strong
That we know we can't go wrong
we are devoted to you

02 Rebecca
Lyrics and music Sydney Elancry
Translation and adaptation by Déborah Partouche

I'll always be there for you
If you ever feel lonesome and blue
If you want to come back to me
Little girl you'll always be
In my heart a precious child
Yes i love you, rebecca.

For the better or the worse
You're now married and away
You have flown with your own wings
You have left me wonder things

You are all i have left
Bitter sweet for my old age
You are the one so far
God be with you rebecca

I know we are alike
You must see your candle light
And pray a lot

Never forget far away
From your home
Your old mother is all alone
Send me letters rebecca

And i cry for you
And i pray for you
Your word 's all i hear rebecca
Everything will be fine
I know that the sun will shine
The children you ll have one day
Oh i love them already rebecca
If you want to fulfill my dreams
Bring me your teens


03 Yerouchalaim jamais je ne t’oublie

Lyrics and music Sydney Elancry
Translation and adaptation by Déborah Partouche

The sun shines in your eyes
Birds are singing in the skies
People are danging
And rejoycing
Because today today's
Your wedding

A princess in your gown
Everybody dancing around
We can feel the Sh'hina
Under the houpa
There he is waiting for you
The hatan

This is a song for you
We can feel David's
Presence too
In the temple there is simh'a
Hoping for love and gueoula

Im eskacheich Yerouchalaim
Tishkar Yémini
Im eskacheich Yerouchalaim
Jamais moi, je ne t’oublie

04 I feel you

Lyrics and music Sydney Elancry
Translation and adaptation by Déborah Partouche

One day you feel
Become " hah'am lev"
And you will serve hachem

With a lot of simh'a
You 'll sing words of Thora
Just for him Hachem

And your heart filled with kedoucha
And your thoughts towards gueoula

Your emouna is so right
That the world will see the light
When you'll pray
Then you will say

I feel you
You surround us everywhere
I need you
I know that you 're always there

Avraham Isth'ak and Yaacov
Moshe and Aaron
Sarah rivka
Rah'el and Leah
Will guide you all along

05 Emouna

Lyrics and music Sydney Elancry
Translation and adaptation by Déborah Partouche

In my arms
My baby
Away from war
The world is a narrow bridge
You should not be afraid
Said the Rebbe

Is more beautiful
Or stronger, than Emuna
A light's shining in the sky
It's the Rebbe's holy Neshama

So even when he can't be seen
You can hear his voice right inside of you
Walking down the streets of Brooklyn
He cares for you, keep Emuna

I pray all night and day for you
It gives me hope and strength to live
Shabat is our way my baby
Please keep Hashem within you

With the Torah
Be' simha
Tomorow is a miracle
Because nothing is stronger
Than Emuna

08 Day after day

Lyrics and music Sydney Elancry
Translation and adaptation by Déborah Partouche

I found you on my way
Your troubled soul was crying
I spoke to you of him
He lived in crown heights
In brooklin
You thought about it and suddenly
You knew that you needed
You needed to meet him

Millions of questions
Going throught your mind
About your life
How to find your path

You went across the ocean
You left your past to see him
To find the reason you were born
Pray to hachem pray to him

Because with him all is possible
With heartfelt techouva
We are able
Remember he told you in brooklyn
Hachem runs the world
It belongs to him

Day after day
And day after day
You'll remember
The light in _'his eyes
Day after day
And day after day
You will feel too
His power rabeinou

Just a glance will change the world
Just a word/ hope is back
Just a dollard from his hand
Just a gesture shining bright

Because with him all is possible
With heartfelt techouva
We are able
Remember he told you in brooklyn
Hachem runs the world
It belongs to him

09 You my friend

Lyrics and music Sydney Elancry

You my dear friend
Guila so full of life
Remember the good time
We shared in class
Those dreams that we had
Most of them not so bad
I'll never forget you dear friend!!!
And i sing for you
And i dance for you

When i think of you
What a hard time for me
To say good bye
For all those days hapiness
Laughters joy and cries...
Oh guila you'll always be with me....
And i sing for you
And i dance for you
And i sing again
When i think of you
Many tears of joy
Fill up my eyes
Emotions, love and peace will rise!!

A new life began
As you went away
This union of life
On your we(ouiai)èèedding day
for all you want to find
May your mazal shine
Many children to rock in your aarms

Lyrics and music Sydney Elancry

She's a girl
Who's always smiling
She's giving , so faastinat(d)ing
With her oôlive skin
And her velvet eyes
She gives me joy

A part of my soul
Something preècious
That will make her (w)hole
She sees in me
As i pray to g-ôd
Who she wants to be
Pray , t)cherish and love

Oh, she's my linda
Dancing all around
She says out loud to me
I need you so mamy
Oh she's my linda
Who i'm longing for
And who i'm wishing for
She's a dream in my mind
Yes she's my linda linda linda
Linda linda linda.........
Who always follows me in life

She does it all with emouna
Not forgetting aolam aba
She is sweet caring
And a tender heart
I already kno(ô)w
We won't be apart

A vision of mine
A baby that was not meant for me
I only have the name
She could have had
And who always follows me in life

Oh linda
Little baby

First candle one year old

In our holly books
As we follow with great pride
When he will live towards his family
We will see him soon again
His little boy in hand......
I love him.......
The house filled up with warmth
The day we brought him home
What else can i pray for
My god thank you my

13 Moishelei

Lyrics and music Sydney Elancry
Translation and adaptation by Sara Hecht

Across the globe, they whispered moishelei
Your name is on their lips
In every prayer...
Millions of souls
The young and the old
Searching for a sign
To keep us strong.....

Your mother lived for you dear mosheile..
She cherished all the joys you brought to her
But that fateful day
The violence and hate
Tore away a dream of hope and light

The prayers of your precious soul
Are heard on high
As the angels bring them home
The heavens cry with you
And carry all the pain
Their courage and their love
Remains forevermore
A life so deeply lived
For the one above......

You cannot understand it, moisheile...
The earth you walk is soaked with sacred tears
And none can replace
The kindness and grace
Of rivka who gave all that she had
Oh Moishelei....
You are the son of gaby, Moishelei...
A man whose faith could weather every storm
A servant of g-d
Unwavering love
For you Moishelei...
Remember Moishelei.......
