Adon Olam (Teaser) Feat. United Synagogue Schools Coronation Choir

According to published reports: Adon Olam, is a hymn in the Jewish liturgy. It is the final prayer of the Musaf service on Shabbat morning and festivals. The word “Adon,” meaning master, was first spoken by Abraham in the Bible, referring to God. The lyrics speak about God’s greatness and all-empowering existence.

“King Charles III has always been a stalwart personal friend to the Jewish community. We hope that this new recording of Adon Olam will act as further recognition of the community’s affection for the Royal Family and our gratitude that Jews can observe their customs and traditions safely and openly in the UK." — Anthony Broza, chief executive of music distributor Wienerworld

Conversation also focuses on the power of music in countering anti-Semitism and the BDS (boycott, divestment and sanction) movement, and new projects planned by The Portnoy Brothers. |
