In times of adversity, seeking spiritual guidance becomes a beacon of hope for many. I, too, found solace during a personal crisis, compounded by the loss of my deeply spiritual grandparents.

I discovered that by closing my eyes and opening my mind, Meron’s profound energy would fill my soul, guiding my way.
Enter Josh Tepper, a talented singer poised to release a Kabbalistic Anthem paying homage to the spiritual Mount Meron on July 27th. This enchanting melody will grace all major streaming platforms.

Continuing his artistic journey at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, he pursued Cinema Studies.
With prior tracks like “Built Me,” “Always Everywhere,” “Poison Apple,” and “Walking In Memphis,” Josh Tepper’s musical prowess promises a captivating and spiritual experience for listeners worldwide.
