A Jewish-British Prayer in Honor of the Coronation
Song of the Week • 4m 23s
As all eyes are on London, we offer this setting of Yigdal in the British tradition, composed for a British synagogue by Abraham Saqui (1824–1893). We pray for every blessing on King Charles and Queen Camilla, and on the many peoples and nations around the world the King serves as head of state. Wishing you a Shabbat Shalom!
