Is there any tune that Adon Olam doesn't fit to? We're still looking for one. After bringing you versions from Hungary, Brazil, Argentina, and Russia, last week we visited a synagogue in California that put on an All-American Friday night service that included Adon Olam sung to John Philip Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever. That post had more page views than any other that we posted in the last few months.
This week we welcome Shabbat with Reform Congregation Natan-Ya in (where else?) Netanya, Israel.
Members of the congregation appear to be enjoying the nice weather in the seaside resort city and join in the singing of this popular Shabbat song to the tune of Do-Re-Mi from The Sound of Music. Shabbat Shalom!
