No Fourth of July celebration would be complete without the playing of John Philip Sousa's march, Stars and Stripes Forever. And no All-American Shabbat at Congregation Beth Torah in Granada Hills, California would be complete without the singing of Adon Olam to the melody of Stars and Stripes Forever, to the accompaniment of drums and cymbals.
No, we're not making this up. Watch and listen for yourself.
But wait!!! There's more!!! Here are links to some of the other selections in last week's Shabbat services at Congregation Beth Torah:
L'cha Dodi sung to This Land Is Your Land
Borchu sung to My Country Tis Of Thee
Sh'ma Yisrael sung to Hail To The Chief
V'Ahavta sung to 76 Trombones
Mi Chamocha sung to America the Beautiful
Yismechu sung to Yankee Doodle Dandy
Shalom Rav sung to the National Anthem
V'Shamru sung to You're a Grand Old Flag
If you listened to all of these, you just completed the Friday night Shabbat Service.
