His US career began with a bang courtesy of the Ed Sullivan, which lead him to share a bill with Elvis Presley. He became known as “Israel’s Ambassador of Song” and received the “Violin of David Award” for his hit song Sham-El-Sheikh (recorded in 1967). He wrote and starred in two Broadway shows, “Don’t Step on My Olive Branch” and “NightSong”.
