    I am in no way saying that I like most of the music out there, but who are we to judge?

    And more importantly, who are we to say what kind of music makes people happy?

    Music — in all of its forms, albeit playing instruments, singing, or simply listening — is such a spiritual thing. If someone finds spirituality in a “techno” song or anything that we might think is not “Jewish”, are you going to say, “I’m sorry, but there is no spirituality in that music. Too bad for you!”

    In today’s day and age, there are so many people falling by the wayside, going off the derech and turning to any form of spirituality that they can find. Why would you want to limit the music that is out there and thereby possibly limit the Jewish people who are turned on to yiddishkeit by it.

    I know of numerous people who became frum from the music of Shlomo Carlebach. I personally can’t stand his music. But its music. And its a gift that Hashem gave to us. TO ALL OF US! And its not our job to take it away from anyone. Even if they can’t carry a tune, its still a gift from Hashem, to enjoy.
