your fave is Jewish: Regina Spektor

Best known for her songs from the Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian soundtrack and the Orange is the New Black opening theme song “You’ve Got Time,“ Regina Spektor is not just an amazing singer-songwriter and pianist. She is also Jewish! Here’s how we know:

-Regina is a Russian Jew who immigrated with her family to the Bronx by way of Austria and Italy in 1989 when she was only nine years old, due to antisemitism in the USSR. After moving to the Bronx, Regina attended a Jewish day school and, later, a yeshiva. [x] [x]

-Regina has performed at a benefit concert for the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society–the immigrant relief agency that helped resettle her family–and at the White House for Jewish American Heritage month. [x] [x

-Regina has performed Hannah Senesh’s “Eli, Eli” in Hebrew, her song “The Flowers” incorporates the traditional Jewish song “Hava Nagila,” and she wrote her song “Ink Stains” about Holocaust denial after visiting Anne Frank’s house. [x] [x] [x] [x]

-Regina’s “Begin to Hope” album cover features her wearing a Star of David necklace. [x]

No one laughs at God in a hospital
No one laughs at God in a war
No one’s laughing at God
When they’re starving or freezing or so very poor

No one laughs at God
When the doctor calls after some routine tests
No one’s laughing at God
When it’s gotten real late
And their kid’s not back from the party yet

No one laughs at God
When their airplane start to uncontrollably shake
No one’s laughing at God
When they see the one they love, hand in hand with someone else
And they hope that they’re mistaken

No one laughs at God
When the cops knock on their door
And they say we got some bad news, sir
No one’s laughing at God
When there’s a famine or fire or flood

—  Regina Spektor
