Winners of Jewish song contest to make aliyah


The top two finishers in an international Jewish singing contest are immigrating to Israel.

Adam Kleinberg, 21, of Mexico, who won the first place in the Hallelujah music contest in August, will be studying music in Israel, according to Ynet. Kleinberg, 21, whose great-grandmother was the first cousin of Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, beat out 30 finalists from around the world.

Oliver Ghnassia, 20, from Brussels, the contest’s first runner-up, told Ynet he will be making aliyah in the coming months.

Kleinberg won the top prize of $8,000 and the opportunity to record a duet with a popular Israeli singer; the song will be distributed to Jewish radio stations throughout the world. He also was scheduled to go on tour, singing in Jewish venues around the world.
