Julie's second recording From Strength To Strength features 11 selections oriented toward both adults and children, including the energetic hit song "Chazak Chazak" and the gorgeous, haunting "Sim Shalom." Songs in both Hebrew and English highlight Julie's powerful vocals, personal and insightful lyrics, upbeat, clever melodies, and spectacular guitar work.
Notes From Montana, released in 2002, features ten original compositions that reflect Julie Silver's passion for social justice while offering meaningful and timely personal insights. Though not specifically Jewish in nature, the songs integrate Julie's lifelong love of folk music with an appealing contemporary pop sound.
Julie's rich, gorgeous voice and soulful interpretations make this delightful family CD a loving tribute to her mentor and grade-school music teacher, Aline Shader. Shader was a prolific and well-known composer who, like Silver, moved easily among musical genres, writing mainstream adult music as well as children's music. The fourteen secular songs featured on For Love to Grow comprise a collection of Shader's timeless tunes that both kids and adults will listen to again and again. Each is lovingly and passionately sung by Julie, with artful arrangements by the incomparable Troy Dexter. For Love to Grow is the recipient of a Parents' Choice Foundation Recommended Award.

It was a tiny house compared to the othersin the town. There was nothing to make it stand out, except for...
With this, the mysterious stranger knocks on the door and is invited inside to join a family in its meager Chanukah celebration. The family joyfully shares the little they have with the stranger, who repays their genorosity and hospitality when he leaves.
