Adon Olam Around the World - A New Version from Mechon Hadar


Mechon Hadar is an educational institution in New York that empowers Jews to create and sustain vibrant, practicing, egalitarian communities of Torah learning, prayer, and service.

On one night in January, a twenty-five person spontaneous Jewish choir came to the choir loft at the Kane Street Synagogue in Brooklyn to sing a new version of Adon Olam by Joey Weisenberg, Mechon Hadar's Creative Director of the Center for Jewish Communal Music.

It's a version of Adon Olam that we haven't heard before, and we suspect it's new to you too. But like many synagogue mainstays, Adon Olam comes in many different flavors. We hope you'll like this one as we welcome another Shabbat.

Enjoy and Shabbat shalom!
