Call the Mid­wife — and the rabbi

The Jewish Chronicle - - NEWS -

YOU might see some fa­mil­iar faces on tele­vi­sion this month in a forth­com­ing episode of Call the Mid­wife, BBC One’s Sun­day night peak-time drama.

It fea­tures a story about a be­reaved Jewish fam­ily and the com­mu­nity ral­ly­ing around them.

Play­ing the chazan is the doyen of can­to­rial per­form­ers, Rabbi Lionel Rosen­feld of Western Mar­ble Arch Syn­a­gogue (in the hat in the pic­ture). Also ap­pear­ing is an­other stal­wart of the Shab­ba­ton Choir, Si­mon Hochhauser, cochair­man of cir­cum­ci­sion de­fence group Mi­lah UK (de­picted far-right).

It is not Rabbi Rosen­feld’s TV de­but; the choir has sung on Songs of Praise and in one of Lord Sacks’s fes­tive broad­casts be­fore. “We could re­ally feel the ca­ma­raderie be­tween ev­ery­one on set,” he said of Call the Mid­wife . “Linda Bas­sett, who plays Nurse Crane, and all the cast made as feel par­tic­u­larly wel­come and we felt as if we were part of the whole en­sem­ble.”
