Kippalive is a mainstay of the Israeli religious acappella scene (is it big enough to be called a ‘scene’? Yes!).

They’ve been trying to develop the most perfect acappella version of kabalat shabbat – welcoming the Sabbath prayers – and have settled on this one.

What’s interesting is that Orthodox Jews pretty much do all their weekend singing acappella due to rabbinic prohibitions proscribing stringed instruments.

What do you think of this?
