Yehuda Glantz without question is very unusual and talented musician. If you are not familiar with his work you click here to read more about him ( use the biography page). He is currently working on releasing his next album entitled "Jerusalem My Life, Chai Vekayam". He is currently asking for assistance from the public and his fans to help raise money to cover the expense of production. Although this idea of using the web to assist in getting funds may not be that groundbreaking I couldn't help but be entertained by what your contributions will get you. Simply click on his site and scroll down to the gift list to see what he has in store:
