My hobbies

I decided to dedicate one page to things I do for fun. Or to be precise: Things I do for fun, which are not technology-related.

There are mainly two things:

  • I do choir singing. My "home choir" is Shahar Choir. The material is mainly Baroque and earlier music (composers like Bach and those who wrote before him), and contemporary music (Britten, Poulenc and friends).

    Want to hear an example? Here it is: Shahar Choir's performace at the Dormition Church (Jerusalem) of Christ Lag in Todesbanden, (5.4MB mp3) from Cantata 4 by J.S. Bach. This is a recording I did during a live concert on Oct 25th 2003.

    The cantata was performed with authentic Baroque instruments, which may sound weird to those who are not used to their sound.

    Persistent rumors claim that I sang Mozart's requiem recently, and I can't deny that. Ah, and I've also sinned with some Barbershop years ago.

  • Somewhere in 2001, I went to see how Orr Dunkelman, who is a co-founder of the Haifa Linux Club, teaches Salsa. So I went for an evening at Elite Salsa Club, where you could dance with girls that were smarter than you (the group has ceased its activity). I became immediately addicted. And I never stopped since. Should I?
