Regular fans of Jewish Humor Central know that Monday is set aside for a Joke to Start the Week and Thursday is Throwback Thursday for comedy nostalgia.
We're trying to keep a few days each week available for surprises, the Greatest Jewish Comedians, and whatever we find funny or nachas producing. But we're reserving Fridays as best we can for something musical or funny to ease us into welcoming Shabbat.
Today we're sharing another version of Adon Olam, the concluding hymn of most Shabbat services. Since we started blogging we've posted 22 versions of the song performed around the world. We don't usually find it as a featured concert piece, but you never know what selections will appear on concert programs.
The Jewish Male Choir of Johannesburg, South Africa sang a medley of multiple versions of Adon Olam with 24 singers and a five piece musical ensemble backing up Cantor Steven Leas, Professor Russel Lurie, Cantor Chilly Chrysler, and Cantor Ezra Sher.
Enjoy, and Shabbat shalom!
