Welcoming Shabbat with Adon Olam (Come Back to Sorrrento)


Adon Olam, the song sung at the end of the Shabbat service in most congregations, lends itself to being adaptable to many different melodies.

In this version Rabbi David Rubinfeld sings Adon Olam to the old Italian tune Torna a Surriento (Come Back to Sorrento).

Born in Belgium and educated in the US, the rabbi came to Australia in 1973, initially living in Sydney, then moving to Melbourne, beginning his long association with the Melbourne Hebrew Congregation, often dubbed “Toorak shule”, in the role of a cantor in 1989. 

Enjoy, and Shabbat shalom!
