Welcoming Shabbat (and Getting Ready for Rosh Hashana) with Adon Olam by the Boys Town Jerusalem Singers


As we were searching for a musical video to help us welcome Shabbat this week, we took a closer look at the calendar and realized that Rosh Hashana is only 12 days away. 

We found another new version of Adon Olam that not only gets us in the mood for Shabbat but also serves as the first in a series of Rosh Hashana music videos that we will post as soon as they come in.

This Adon Olam is sung by the Boys Town Jerusalem choir on their Jerusalem campus. Over the years we've been posting their music videos for Pesach, Rosh Hashana, Sukkot, and Chanukah.

Boys Town Jerusalem is a high school in Jerusalem, Israel which has over 900 boys from grades 7 to grade 12 and a 2 year post high school engineering program. Once the boys graduate they continue on to enlist in the IDF ( Israel Defense Forces)

More than 75% of the boys come from economically disadvantaged backgrounds and require substantial scholarship assistance. No student is ever turned away from Boys Town Jerusalem due to inability to pay tuition.

We hope you enjoy their vocal and musical talents. Shabbat shalom!
