New York - Exclusive: Making The Leap From Music To ??? What Is Next For Lipa Schmeltzer? [video]

Published on: March 9, 2010 04:07 PM

One of the pages of the New Lipa HagadaNew York - There are singers and there are singers.  Lipa Schmeltzer is not just another singer.
Case in point:  Lipa’s newest release, which contains no audio whatsoever.  Entitled Lipa’s Hagada, this full color, laminted, hard covered Hagada, has stunning photos of Lipa Schmeltzer as he takes you through the Pesach Seder, Lipa style.  Instead of complicated commentaries,  his varying facial expressions convey the emotions that comprise the Pesach Seder, making the nuances of this pivotal night accessible to anyone of any age. 
With this, Lipa’s latest venture, the Chassidic superstar is marketing himself in a way that no Jewish singer has ever done before.  It took time to find a product that would be easily accepted by the mainstream market, yet still retain that Lipa-esque flair that has become the trademark of this beloved singer.
It was this past January that Lipa decided to do a book.  Three nights before the January 10th HASC concert, Lipa returned from a trip to Eretz Yisroel to find that his dining room had been transformed into a mock Pesach Seder.  The photo shoot took place that very night and the rest of the Hagada was pulled together the following week.  The result?  A Pesach hagada that is a visual delight, sure to entertain young and old alike.
In an exclusive interview with VIN News, Lipa explained his desire to branch out into other venues.  “I try to give out my feelings in a lot of ways.  I want to enhance people’s lives in any way I can.  If I can make the sedarim more interesting for kinderlach, if they can not make noise because they are enjoying my hagada, then I am helping people.  This will help a lot of people by the sedarim.  Everyone and anyone can use this hagada.” 
Page 27 in the Hagada
Next up for this talented performer?  Aside from a new album, due out May 16th, which he promises will be “absolutely crazy”, Lipa is already thinking ahead to his next book, possibly Megillas Esther.  Lipa admitted that he has contemplated other Lipa-branded items as well and has considered the possibility of doing clothing and eyewear lines.  Will swirling multi-colored bekeshes appear in heimishe menswear stores?  Will distinctive rainbow hued eyeglasses be featured at our local opticians?  Lipa declined to offer any more details when pressed for details on future product lines, but promised to continue to keep on delighting his fans in new and varied ways.

While this is a first on the Jewish celebrity scene, in the regular world of entertainment this happens every day. People who become popular for some reason or another become a brand name. They then try to attach that name to anything and everything to try make some money. Sometimes it works, usually it doesn't. Every actor tries to sing. Every singer tries to act. Every athlete tries to sing and act. They all try to sell clothing.
Lipa missed a crucial stepping stone though. They all start with perfume/cologne. All of them. I believe Lipa can be very successful in this market. Here are some ideas he can use. Free of charge. My contribution to jewish stardom.
First on the block, Mikva scented cologne of course. Chicken soup scented perfume for the misses. Gefilta fish and herring for him, yerushalmi kugel her. Pastrami for him, gala for her. And of course, last but not least, the matching set for the couple that has everything, b/o for him, b/o for her.
Take that to the bank Lipa.

Jews in general are missing a very important concept. That hashem wants us to be a rainbow coalition nation, comprised of many segments. Hashem wanted 12 shevotim, each essentially with varying traditions. Krias yam suf was accomplished with 12 different lanes, one for each sheivet. Lipa provides a certain exuberance for yiddishkeit that his music brings out. Now he's giving us this beautiful Hagodoh. Is it for everybody in klal yisroel? Of course not. If Eichler's and Hecht's and Berman's can sell dozens of different Hagodohs, each with various traditions, then Lipa can make an illustrated Hagodoh that will teach through entertainment. This is great for kids and isn't that what the Pesach seder is all about? Teaching the kids.

Lipa has a right to make an Hagaddah and you and me have a right not to buy it. As long as his Haggadah isn't blasphemous, the Rabbonim should stay out of this. The artist Arthur Szyk's illustrated an Haggadah, and it wasn't anyone’s business. Szyk also illustrated the Pirkei Ovos where he illustrated a scene of "Al Tarbeh Sichah Im Ishoh”, and no one either said anything. I recall that there is an illustrated Hagaddah printed 3-4 hundred years ago where the man points on his wife in "Roshe moh hu Oimer", so it looks like that "humor" was acceptable then; so I think that we shouldn't make an Eisak out of this.

I would look at such an Hagaddah as silly, and those using it by the Seder as peasants (Poiyeran); but silliness is still not forbidden by law.

This is Lipa at his best -

Think of the children being entertaint for hours during the seder with "Yetzias Mitzraim" photos bringing it to live, great idea, which he put to the task right away.

Chazak Ubaruch!

Very well said, except for your endorsement of us being a "rainbow coalition nation"...that has connotations which are most certainly NOT what Hashem wants from ANY of us. But you're right on target.

Fargin is the word missing in too many peoples life.
Lipa is there for anyone who approaches him.
He has changed the life of many who may not be so a typical, such as the Ptach boys who use to be hooked on rap music. Today, not only are they fans of Lipa's music but he has formed a connection with these boys who he hosts willingly.
Lipa is a person who would have helped me up, when i slipped on a well known grocery in Boro Park. Everyone just stared and walked on, even amigo learned not to help!
Lipa keep it up!

that's your opinion and your more than entitled to it, however take this for what it is a lighthearted attempt by a simple jew to help people feel pesach. if you don't agree than dont purchase the haggadah and move on

Asukpeh i love you and respect you a great deal.I posted many comments during the whole grossman case whice you liked very much.But where did i call for a ban on the haggadah?I simply pointed out it's not the way for frum jews to make such a big deal about stars.

I agree with you on that.

I also want to point out that Az Men Redt Fardedt Men Zich. I take back my last sentence where I make everyone who buys this a “Poiyer”. I haven't seen the entire Haggadah so I had no right to make such a general statement and I regretted it right after clicking the submit button.

Proof that jewish holidays have become commercialized needs no further proof than this. The Pesach Seder is supposed to be about retelling the story of how we left from Egypt, not staring at ridculous pictures of a singer. The idea of being famous has clearly gotten to Lipa's head, as he now truly believes that any thing he puts his face on will sell. and this is unfortunately true.
