    A video of the Chief Rabbi singing Oseh Shalom has just received its millionth Youtube visitor.

    The song, set in a new version by Shabbaton choir director Stephen Levey, was recorded by leading producer Trevor Horn and featured three chazzans as well as children from the Moriah Jewish Day School.

    “I’m delighted it has touched so many people,” said Lord Sacks. “It’s a piece of music that has lifted people’s spirits.”

    It was one of the tracks on Israel; Home of Hope, a CD of music released by the Chief Rabbi to mark Israel’s 60th anniversary two years ago.

    Lord Sacks has also launched a new weekly video class on the weekly Torah portion, Covenant and Conversation, available on Youtube and the websites of the United Synagogue and Office of the Chief Rabbi.
