Israeli musician Shai Barak has produced a music video, together with artists and musicians in multiple countries and languages using the slogan: Je Suis Juif (I am a Jew.)
The slogan became the symbol of the attack around the world and especially in France last year, including at a mass protest in which Frenchmen held up signs showing their support for the victims.
Barak approached popular Jewish singers from across the globe, and together they recorded a pop song that they hope will send out a message of Jewish unity. The song was written and sung in 3 languages: Hebrew, English and French.
All the singers from around the world filmed themselves using smart-phones in "Selfie" format.
The video, which was the brainchild of Jerusalemite journalist Zvika Klein, who previously produced a video of 10 hours of silent walking in Paris as a Jew, hopes to be the first Jewish Selfie music video. It is aimed at uniting Jews from all denominations around the world and is therefore sung in multiple languages.
The singers include:
From Israel: Gad Elbaz, Ishay Lapidot, Aaron Razel, Mendy Jeruffi, Shai Barak, JEW2, Dou Reim, Udi Ulman, Amiran& Arik Dvir, The chief IDF cantor Shai Abramson,and the Buba Myses Puppet rock band.
From the US and the UK: Lipa Schmeltzer & Matt Dub, Benny Freidman, Berry Weber, Eli Gerstner, Shloime Gertner, and Ely Katz.
