Welcoming Shabbat with Adon Olam by Russia's Red Army Choir


The Alexandrov Ensemble, commonly known as the Red Army Choir in the West, is an official army choir of the Russian armed forces. Founded during the Soviet era, the ensemble consists of a male choir, an orchestra, and a dance ensemble.

The Ensemble has entertained audiences both in Russia and throughout the world, performing a range of music including folk tunes, hymns, operatic arias and popular music. The group's repertoire has included The Volga Boatmen's Song, Katyusha, Kalinka, and Ave Maria.

This week we're enlisting them to lead us in singing Adon Olam as we welcome another Shabbat. The video is of a performance at the Sultan's Pool in Jerusalem.

Shabbat shalom!
