Yair’s Music and personal journey led him to various musical cooperations with Israel’s leading musicians. In the last two years his journey has taken him across the borders of Israel.
His music creates a connection between people from different cultures and religions.
Yair’s connection to scriptures created one of his most powerful songs, ‘Refa Na’ (‘please heal her’, Numbers 12:13), which he wrote in 2020 to his ill grandmother. The song has reached millions of views on youtube and was translated to a variety of languages (Chinese, German, Spanish and more). The success of ‘Refa Na’ made him one of the most surprising and diverse singers in the international faith music arena.
One of the most interesting cover versions for ‘Refa Na’ was of the Lebanese Christian singer Carine Basilli, who asked Yair to sing the song with her in Arabic, as a prayer for peace in the Middle East.
"MINYAN" is the Hebrew word that describes the quorum of 10 Jewish adults.
