Issachar Miron

font size: +

Issachar Miron, 95, of New York City, died on Jan. 29, 2015.

He was portrayed by Readers’ Digest as
“a top ranking composer,” lauded in the
New York Times as “a leading Israeli educator and composer,” in Variety “as one of the top composers,” by ASCAP. Today as “a major force
in today’s liturgical music,” and the recipient of still further praise by the Christian Science Monitor, Issachar Miron, has made a name for himself throughout the world as a top talent, composer, poet, writer, creative mind, filmmaker, and a master photographer, whose kaleidoscopic lens reveals to plain sight the anthropomorphic manifestations that often reside unseen in the natural world.

His works are so widely known and have permeated so thoroughly into every denomination of Judaism and every corner of the world, that listeners may be mistakenly prone to attribute them to those two well-known genres, folk and traditional. If that’s the case, you’ll know better the next time you dance to “Tzena Tzena Tzena Tzena” at a simcha, or bring in Shabat with “Mah Yafeh Hayom”, an excerpt from Miron’s larger work “Shir Shabat.” Indeed, his “Tzena Tzena Tzena Tzena” is now the
recipient of a Grammy Award, having been featured, along with a special tribute by Pete Seeger to Issachar Miron, on “Pete Seeger at 89” the 2008 Grammy Award-winner for Best Traditional Folk Music Album.

Predeceased by his wife,Tzipora, he is survived by his children, Ruthie Schleider, Shlomit Sholem, and Miriam Lipton.

Services were on Jan. 30 with arrangements by Gutterman and Musicant Jewish Funeral Directors, Hackensack.

Arrangements were by Eden Memorial Chapels, Fort Lee.
