beit habubot.jpg

What can I say, living so far away from Israel, it takes a while before I become exposed to newer music over there. So, I have just received a belated introduction to this new band, Beit Habubot, that came out with its first album in 2005. They are proud that it has gone “gold” in Israel recently despite first being ignored by radio stations over there. After many live performances, word started getting out. I do just want to say that they are very fine and their music can be addicting.

You can hear some of their music.

About the author



  • The most interesting thing about the band is how they became popular. Way before they had a record deal their demo discs were copied and were passed virally from Israeli backpacker to backpacker. So they were popular among Israeli’s abroad before they had any success here!

  • When I first read the headline, I thought that you were going to write about a play I saw at the Jerusalem Theater this weekend – DollHouse, an adaptation of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House. The male characters were all little people – the tallest man was just 1.4 meters.

    You can read more about it here.

  • BEIT HABUBOT is assom! And yes, they were known by all the Israeli backpackers here in Latin American wayyyy before they were heard on Galgalatz..

  • hey
    i would just like to have the lyrics of ” le maani ” cause i love this song !!!
    thanks !julie

  • I just discovered Beit Habubot 2 weeks ago and can’t stop listening to the album. Israeli rock is the best kept secret.

  • They’re great, agreed. But I’m with Esther, this isn’t really rock-star shirtless, just in-need-of-shirts shirtless.

  • Hello!!!!Last year I was in Israel, and I heard their music for the first time, it is great. Now I am listening their album almost everyday!!!But I would like to have their lyrics, unfortunatelly I can’t read hebrew, may be I can find in with latin words!!!Maybe someone knows where???? Thanks

  • So I’ve never been to Israel…don’t know anything about it…or Israeli rock for that matter…I”m from a small town in Illinois and came across this band today…and I feel like I have already fell in love with it!

  • Would any fans of Bet Habubot in New York be interested in seeing them live in the city?

  • Bruce – do you know something we don’t?? is there a chance that Bet Habubot might do a US tour?? i’m living in California at the moment, but i would (money permitting) fly to NYC to see them live! i love love love them!!!

  • Does anyone know when Bet Habubot might be coming to perform in NYC – How can we arrange this?

    Tal, NYC…

  • If Beit HaBubot comes to america… I will walk to see them live!

    They are amazing!

    My Hebrew is pretty… um… lacking at times. So I dont understand everything that they are saying.
    Does anyone know if they are religious or not (assuming that they are not Chabad based on the shirtless photo of course… heehee) ?

    I love Madafim. LOVE IT. I’m actually listening to it right this moment. Amir’s voice is very soothing… 🙂

  • Darn, missed ’em. 🙁
    True, they dont look too observant, but neither does the Moshav band, ya know? They are pretty “odd looking” (Yehuda seems like he cannot match his clothes, but he can sing so who am I to complian!? 🙂 ) and yet they are at least semi-religious, raised Breslov on the Moshav as the name suggests… 🙂
    I need to find someone who can translate Hebrew better than I can!

  • Beit Habubot is planing a Tour at the U.S Hillel’s, at the end of November beginning of December 2008. if anyone knows someone that will be interested on bringing them, Please contact me (I’m their overseas booking coordinator) to get more details:

  • To the Creator of this so called, “article”.

    I wanted to see an article on Beit HaBubot. the band that the title on Google of this said this was about. I am truly pissed off and I want to see an article by 5:00 tomorrow. That’s 5:00 on Thursday, March 25, 2010. Stupid. I am disappointed because I will fail Jewish History because of this and will not get into university. So you’d better listen to me.


  • Not anything Mr. Themiddle. Google is supposed to be free. This website is supposed to be free.

    You know what Mr. Themiddle, I will pay. Know what I’m going to pay, NOTHING.

    Oh, and by the way, Mr. The Middle, I would like to know your first name but I doubt you’ll give it to me so I’ll just call you Mr. Stukin Themiddle. Since Themiddle is a middle name, I’ll make up a last name too. It’ll be Wichugurl. Mr. Stukin Themiddle Wichugurl. I will pay nothing.

  • Sounds like a cool last name, Stukinthemiddlewichugurl. That’s your last name now. I’ll have to make up more now, Mr. Stukinthemiddlewichugurl. Dammit will be your first name then Eiym will be your middle name.

    I will pay nothing, Mr. Dammit Eiym Stukinthemiddlewichugurl.

    • Balls, if you want a service, you’ll have to pay for it. If you want to pay “nothing”, you’ll get nothing.

  • Froylein is my agent and if she says that you get nothing for paying nothing, then so it shall be.

    Your loss, balls.

  • Well that’s unfortunate Mr. Dammit Eiym Stukinthemiddlewichugurl (Which I am formally shortening to Mr. DES) because . . .

    Mrs. Froylein, I would really like an answer to my question. If you can’t answer it then maybe Mr. DES can. The question is: Why can’t I see the article?

    Oh, and by the way, Mr. DES and Mrs. Froylein, the Jewish History project was due a few days ago and I got an F. I then received an E-Mail from the Jewish studies university that I was planning on getting a scholarship from saying, and I copied and pasted from the E-Mail, “To Mr. Moshe Goldberg, we unfortunately will not be granting you a scholarship for you have failed to meet the following expectation: Do well on all tests, essays, and assignments. Again, we apologize.”

    I am not lying. you can even look up the Jewish university called Jewish University of America on the internet.

    So, gee thanks creator of this article for ruining my life.

    And thanks Mrs. Froylein and Mr. DES or whatever your real names are for rubbing it in.

    • Balls, you got an F on your project because you were lazy and not well-organised otherwise you’d have started your preparation in time.

      You’ve got no one to blame but yourself.

  • Mrs. Froylein. You are inconsiderate of other people’s feeling. I got an F. You are mean.
