Welcoming Shabbat With Adon Olam - From Russia - Fourth of a Series

It's becoming a tradition at Jewish Humor Central to get in the Shabbat mood with a version of Adon Olam as it's sung around the world.  In the last three weeks we shared renditions from Hungary, Brazil, and Argentina.  This week it's Russia's turn, by way of Israel.

International opera star Yevgeni Shapovalov – called “the Israeli Pavarotti” by the media in Israel – formed the THREE TENORS FROM ISRAEL in 2005 with his acclaimed operatic colleagues Felix Livshitz and Vladislav Goray. All originally from the former Soviet Union, Shapovalov and Livshitz now make their homes in Israel, while Goray remains a Ukrainian citizen. Since their 2005 debut, they have given over 100 sold-out concerts in Israel and Europe, delighting audiences with their breathtaking performances, tinged with humor and nostalgia.

Shabbat Shalom!  Enjoy!



  1. Very nice.....esp when you remember that they would have never been able to do this performance not so many years ago!!

  2. Freedom and a great expression of the heart and the ability to share their music with the world

    We have come a long way. L'Shana Tova to all those who celebrate and my it be a blessed year .
