Chief joins Trevor Horn for a kosher Live Aid

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS - BY CANDICE KRIEGER

LOOK OUT, Sir Bob Geldof. The Chief Rabbi is to make a live record­ing of his re­cently re­leased CD, Is­rael — Home of Hope, in the orig­i­nal stu­dio used to record Live Aid.

The CD, recorded and re­leased to co­in­cide with Is­rael’s 60th an­niver­sary, was part-pro­duced by Trevor Horn, who pro­duced Live Aid and has worked with Paul McCart­ney, Seal, Rod Ste­wart and Frankie Goes To Hol­ly­wood. He ar­ranged three tracks on the album, which fea­tures reg­gae star Matisyahu, the Shab­ba­ton Choir and a se­lec­tion of Is­raeli pop mu­si­cians.

Later this month, the Chief Rabbi, Sir Jonathan Sacks, to­gether with the chazan of West­ern Mar­ble Arch Syn­a­gogue, Rev­erend Lionel Rosen­feld, the Shab­ba­ton Choir and chil­dren from the Mo­riah Jewish Day School in Mid­dle­sex, will spend a day in the West Lon­don stu­dio record­ing a new ver­sion of the song Oseh Shalom, taken from the CD. Chaz­ans Shi­mon Craimer, of the Riverdale Jewish Cen­tre in New York, and Jonny Turgel, chazan of Edg­ware United, who sing on the track, will lend their voices to the record­ing, pos­si­bly with the Chief Rabbi him­self.

The song will be re­leased as a live vis­ual en­try on home­ofhope.co.uk, the web­site set up by the Chief Rabbi for the CD.
