By COLlive reporter

A new music video starring the popular 8th Day band pays tribute to the warmth, camaraderie and family feeling that the Crown Heights neighborhood is known for.

Directed by Danny Finkelman of Sparks Next and produced by Chaya Greenberg, it was filmed in the Brooklyn neighborhood which is the hub of the Chabad-Lubavitch community and home of the Rebbe.

The video features the local landmarks and figures that make the legendary neighborhood the home-base for hundreds of thousands of people from around the world. It also features a slew of appearances by Jewish music and entertainment stars.

The song “My Shtetl Is Calling,” is a remix of the classic 8th Day song “Babenyu,” with the Marcus brothers giving the beloved favorite a new 2018 modern Klezmer sound.

The music video was produced in conjunction with COLlive.com, as part of the 10th-anniversary celebration of the community news service, and was debuted at the COLlive Day Concert on Kingston Avenue.

“The music video was created as an ode to the Crown Heights Jewish community, which our website brings together every day and makes every fellow Jew ‘just a click away from Crown Heights,’” says Mica Soffer, Publisher of COLlive and a local resident.

“Our vision was to create a heartfelt tribute to the place so many thousands of us, even those living in the farthest corners of the globe, call home, or ‘home away from home.’”

Finkelman said: “I very much appreciate the platform COLlive provided for me when I first started out, ever since my first ‘Unity for Justice‘ project for Sholom Mordechai Rubashkin. It was a no-brainer for me to come on board and celebrate their 10th anniversary in the music video tribute to Crown Heights.”
