Havdalah Service Led by IDF Chief Cantor Shai Abramson at the King David Hotel



On Fridays we usually post a musical welcome to Shabbat with a version of Shalom Aleichem, Lecha Dodi, or Adon Olam. But this week we're skipping to the end of Shabbat and continuing the series of Havdalah services that we started in September.
There's a rich lode of musical endings to Shabbat, and Havdalah ceremonies around the world reflect the traditional and local musical tastes of each location.

Here's a video to save for tomorrow night at the conclusion of Shabbat. It's a beautiful version of Havdalah sung by Shai Abramson, Chief Cantor of the Israel Defense Forces. 

The Havdalah Service took place at the King David Hotel with the FIDF Delegation to Israel. IDF Chief Cantor Ltc. Shai Abramson Acompanied by the Rabbinical Choir Conducted by Ofir Sobol with Roey Shema at the piano.
 
Shabbat Shalom and Shavua Tov.
Enjoy!
