Welcoming Shabbat with Yigdal by Enrico Macias

Enrico Macias, a native of French Algeria, has performed around the world, primarily in Europe and the Middle East. Born to Jewish parents in 1938, he has not been allowed to return to Algeria because of his ongoing support for Israel.

Today our Welcoming Shabbat post features Macias singing a Sephardic version of Yigdal Elohim Chai, the liturgical poem that concludes the Friday evening Shabbat service. 

Enjoy and Shabbat shalom.
