Benny Friedman (Hebrew: בנימין הכהן פרידמן;) is an American Hasidic Jewish singer. Professionally trained in voice, he rose to prominence on the contemporary Jewish religious music scene with his first album in 2009. His biggest hit to date is the song “Yesh Tikvah” (There is Hope), which has been covered by numerous Jewish musical artists. Singing mainly in Hebrew, Friedman tours extensively and also appears in music videos. He views his music as a kiruv (outreach) tool, with the goal of drawing Jews closer to Judaism.
