AllMusic Review by

Ultimate Jewish Music Collection is a collection of orchestral takes on classic Jewish themes and celebratory songs. The album covers a wide variety of music, from the dark and rumbling "This Land Is Mine: Exodus" to the ethereal beauty of "Eli Eli." Although many of these songs are available in several versions already, the renditions found on this album stand out not only because of their power but because of how seriously the musicians take the material. It is this view of the music as epic and grand that separates this from many Jewish music collections (many of which performs these in a folk style). This album would be great for anyone who would like all of these songs in their collection, as well as someone who may have the songs but is looking for classier renditions.
