Kiddush Blues by the Klezmer Company Orchestra

This live Hebrew performance by the Klezmer Company Orchestra demonstrates how to sing the Shabbat evening blessings over the wine, according to the Reform Ashkenazi tradition. Sung by guest vocalist Leo Williams and The Ebony Chorale of the Palm Beaches, this rendition of Kurt Weill’s musical composition of Kiddush is a unique way to enjoy the Shabbat evening blessings. Whereas other communities perform a longer version, without instruments, including an additional paragraph prior to the blessing over the wine, it is customary in the Reform community to begin from this point.
