Blue Suede Yar'mulka?


Gad Elbaz, the very frum singer whose sound, swagger and looks have won him many young fans. With giggling teens pressed up against the backstage gate at concerts hoping to glimpse at the 23-year-old "pop idol" and tons of e-mails calling him a "world-class hunk," the frequent phone calls pledging love and the adoration visible at his shows have put him in trouble with the ultra-very frum.

Elbaz is a compact, energetic presence his olive skin and dark eyes reflect his family's North African roots. Of his three solo albums, "Meanings" has had the most success, selling 80,000 copies since last spring.

Moran Elbaz, 19, was once a fan. Now his wife, mother of his son, Benjamin. The two met after Moran organized an Elbaz concert . Now Moran finds herself fielding a steady stream of phone calls from young females, who often hang up once she asks the reason for the call.

"He is so handsome," gushes Etti, 17, whose ankle-length skirt and turtleneck sweater fit the modesty requirements of the ultra-Orthodox dress code. "He's also good and sweet.""Tell Gadi we're lovesick over him," Etti says over her shoulder as she is escorted back to the women's section.
