About Me
Yitzchok Meir Malek leads a fresh, grassroots movement with growing and sustainable momentum that uses the power of music, shared events, holiday celebrations, and social projects to provide a deeply meaningful and engaging experience of unity between different kinds of Jews and non Jews alike. He is 30, and has lived in Jerusalem since he moved here alone at the age of 17. By day Yitzchok Meir plans revolutionary events for the city. By night YM plays concerts and is getting ready to release his debut album with Ronny Vance (former president of Geffen Music and Interscope Music, responsible for the signings of Tupac, New Edition, Stephen Sondheim, Bruce Hornsby and Gwen Stephani, and for the placement of such notable songs as "Maniac,” “New Attitude,” and Eric Clapton’s two-time 1998 Grammy winning song "Change The World,") to be released next season. He made aliyah at age 17 from NY because he didn't want to be history, he wanted to be part of making history. He believes that the best way to feel at home in Jerusalem is to grab a musical instrument and walk the streets returning smiles and making new friends. If there’s anything he’s learned about connecting to the community here, it is if you want something to happen, anything, you can make it happen, and you should.
