Co-Founder and head craftsman of King David Harps, Micah originally trained in the building and repair of stringed instruments (violin, guitar, mandolin, etc.) in California. He began making the first harp for his wife, Shoshanna, using this mastery together with what they found in archeological evidence, Talmudic information, and what’s written in the Bible concerning the harp.
He loves working with wood and using his discerning eye to ensure that every harp created here has been crafted to ‘Temple quality’ perfection. An excellent photographer as well, his photographs are the lens that capture the beauty of the harps for the world to see. ding 2
Shoshanna together with her husband Micah are the founders of King David Harps. Shoshanna's dream of a harp of her own came true in 1984. Micah Harrari built the harp for her and the rest is history.
Shoshanna now guides the creation of each and every harp from conception to completion. She welcomes visitors with a tour of the harp shop that includes sharing secrets of the harp and plays melodies ancient and new. Shoshanna generously shares the wisdom and traditions of the Harps of David to people around the world.
Shoshanna can be heard playing the harp on several musical productions of her own and of others. She is also a natural health educator and author, guiding people to a natural path of healing.
