Produced by Brooks Arthur (Janis Ian, Bette Midler, Jackie Mason, Adam Sandler), The Jewish Songbook "The Heart And Humor Of A People" features newly recorded renditions of classic Jewish songs by some of today's top Jewish stars including Adam Sandler, Jason Alexander, Rob Schneider, Paul Shaffer, Max Weinberg, Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, Neil Sedaka and many others. The Jewish Songbook is at once musical and comedic, and wholeheartedly documents the creative richness of Jewish culture via artists very much embracing their own Jewish roots. A portion of the album's proceeds will directly benefit The Jewish Federation with all the artists individually donating at least 50% of their royalties, and Shout! Factory/JMG making a matching contribution.
