Synagogues hold 'Shul of Rock'

11th July 2013
 

FOUR synagogues joined together to take part in a rock concert.

Middlesex New Synagogue in Bessborough Road, Harrow, hosted the Friday Night ‘Shul of Rock’, where traditional sabbath songs such as Dodi Li and Ma Tovu, were performed to a variety of rock tunes in a bid to get more young people involved in the Jewish community.

Frank Dabba Smith, of Harrow and Wembley Progressive Synagogue, also in Bessborough Road, led the service and said it was an ‘unqualified success’.

The other synagogues which took part in the event on Friday, June 28, were Hatch End Masorti Synagogue, in Grimsdyke Road, Pinner, and Kol Chai Synagogue in Uxbridge Road, Hatch End.

Project manager of the service, Mark Philips, said: “This was just great fun. I’m sure the rock service was not everyone’s cup of tea, but its great to see the community innovating and when I look at the programme for the months ahead, there will be something for everyone.” Read more
