"We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be

"Thank you for sending your CD Shabbat Shalom. My wife and I enjoyed your music immensely. Your melodious voiceprojected a calmness and inspiration and we continue to play your Cd again and again.

In his “Look For A Morning” CD, Len Udow presses his gifts for musical composition and performance into the service of a fresh, contemporary expression of Jewish music. To paraphrase the rabbis, Udow’s music enters the heart, because it comes from a deeply-felt place of heart and soul. Those who grew up in Winnipeg’s storied North End will get a particular kick out of selection #5, “The Yid.” And those looking for a new version of the Ein Keloheinu prayer will be inspired by selection #10. All told, “Look For A Morning” is a Jewish musical delight.
Rabbi Alan Green, Senior Rabbi Congregation Shaarey Zedek - Winnipeg
Len Udow has created new melodies for ancient prayers, and has inspired others to do the same. Both he and Janet Pelletier-Goetze have written new music for our regular services, and have led us on amazing voyages of discovery as we learn these new songs and new ways to sing. Our community is exceedingly richer for the music that is created within these walls. - Linda Freed, President Temple Shalom Winnipeg
Len's First CD “Shabbat Shalom” is Also Available at McNally Robinson’s in Winnipeg!
Ruby was given her Hebrew name yesterday of Menicha (her great grandmother's name) Tikvah (which means hope). The ceremony was done by a man who is very dear to us. He married Mark and I almost 7 years ago & has done both of our children's baby naming ceremonies. What I feel the most joyous about is that we are privileged as an interfaith family in that our children are loved and supported from both religions. It is our hope that they will grow up to be strong, knowledgable, loving, kind and respectful people who accept and love diversity in all its forms. - Mark and Christine Fishman
