Hatikvah / America The Beautiful – the Mash Up

Cantor Angela Buchdahl

Cantors Angela Buchdahl and Julia Katz sing an American-Israeli anthem during Shabbat worship services at the Central Synagogue, June 14, 2013.

I chose to post it because I was curious to hear Buchdahl’s voice, after the brouhaha of the last few days regarding her illusive Orthodox conversion. She’s probably the new face of the reform movement: racially diverse, utilizing Jewish and Zionist themes in a Hebrew/English service, and singing beautifully.

But, seriously, is that what you do in shul on Shabbes?

    Wow

  2. Yori Yanover, listen to the singing one more time. Only THIS time, listen with your 2,000 year old "wandering Jew" neshamah, and NOT with your intellect.

  3. This is beautiful. Most Jews except the orthodox do not go to shul regularly on Shabbat. With few exceptions, only the orthodox fill their synagogues to capacity on Shabbat and Yom Tov. If this is what it takes to bring Jews to conservative and reform synagogues and inspire them to create a Jewish home, why should it be criticized. While I can understand the orthodox world disagreeing with this, unfortunately most of the Jewish world today is intermarried and assimilated.
    The various branches of Judaism continuously fighting with each other does nothing to instill the love of Judaism in our youth or bring people to the synagogue. There are enough different flavors in Judaism to create a loving synagogue for every Jew.

    Of COURSE It’s what you do in shul on Shabbat especially when it falls on Flag Day here in the United States. I think that with American Jews fleeing from organized congregational life in droves, something like this can only bring them back in even greater numbers. Travel to Israel by American Jews has decreased precipitously. Our youth have no desire to visit Israel and even less desire to attend anything at their local synagogue. Overall, Jewish awareness of what is going on in Israel is a black hole of ignorance for so many American Jews. There is decreasing pride in our American homeland and in our Jewish homeland. A stirring mash up such as this can only spark that pride and we all benefit. I loved it!

  7. Nechama Dina Namirovski says:

    wow

  8. The women in all places are the center of the families, the jews doesn't look this, they have to change the attitudes, the women has the same right like themen in synagoges, we are in the 21ft century.

    A woman can’t be a hazan.
