Welcoming Shabbat with a Liverpool Version of Shalom Aleichem


Last month the Friday evening service at Congregation Shir Shalom in Buffalo, New York welcomed Shabbat with traditional lyrics, and music by the Beatles.

Congregation Shir Shalom is a merged Reform and Reconstructionist synagogue, the first in the world. They are diverse, multigenerational and inclusive of traditional, non-traditional and interfaith couples.

The service included traditional parts of the Friday night service, set to familiar Beatles tunes. In the video below, the congregation sings Shalom Aleichem set to the Beatles song With the Help of My Friends.

If you don't remember the Beatles' original version, the video appears below, after Shalom Aleichem.

Enjoy and Shabbat shalom.
