    Contemporary cantor choirs draw inspiration from the biblical tradition of the Levites, who played a significant role as singers in the Jerusalem Temple. Psalm 122 is among the fifteen Psalms known as “the songs of steps” or “the songs of ascents” (Shir hamaalot in Hebrew). One of the most exceptional choirs, “Kolot Min Hashamayim,” dedicated to the memory of Shoshana Zilberstein and conducted by Maestro Rafael Biton, along with cantors Tzudik Greenwald, Berel Tzuker, and Moshe Fishel, transported the audience back to the golden era of Jerusalem during the time of the Temple.

    Maestro Rafael Biton, a student of Elli Yaffe, is the founder of the Malachim Music School and the “Kolot Min Hashamayim in Memory of Shoshana Zilberstein Choir.”
