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.

    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
    v 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

    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

    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

    Those dreams that we had
    Most of them not so bad
    I'll never forget you dear friend!!!

    And i sing for you

    Many children to rock in your aarms

    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.......
