Euphonic Friday: Fasuliah edition

Shavua tov and chodesh tov to all!

In honor of Rosh Chodesh Adar II, we interrupt this blog to bring you yet another one of our family’s favorite obscure songs from the late 1970’s/early 1980’s.

Shoshi B’Agaf Sheva” (“שושי באגף שבע” – literally, “Shoshi in Ward 7”) was the name of an album recorded inside a Be’er Sheva prison by a group of inmates, including soloist David Shoshi (hence the album’s name).

Fasuliah” (literally, “beans” or “bean stew” in Arabic) comes from that album:

Lyrics by Dudu Alharar; music by Chanan Yuval.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled Our Shiputzim fare of lizards, Chodesh Irgun, citrus fruit, and Heblish*


!שבוע טוב וחודש טוב


*And speaking of Heblish, watch this space for a special Purim edition…


  1. All the other songs about bean stew can't hold a candle to this one. ( :

  2. I wasn't even born in the early 80's.....

  3. SR - So true. So true... ;-)

    YW - So I guess I didn't meet you the only time I was at KAJ: for a wedding in the summer of 1979? [For the record, I wasn't very old at the time... :-) ]

  4. Mrs S- What makes you think I daven in KAJ :p, no i was not there, G6 told me the whole story.... was the choir off then? if it was you have to come back to see it.

  5. Yekke Wannabe - I can't say I really remember it all that well, but would the choir have been there at a wedding?

  6. Mrs S- I meant in shul there is a choir which is off 8 weeks in the summer.
