A Priest, a Rabbi and an Imam Cute Violinist: Only in Israel

"Well I've heard there was a secret chord/That David played and it pleased the Lord."

This neat video (see below) was posted on Aussie Dave's always useful Israelycool, a few hours ago.

I believe it's a priest, but I suppose it could be a monk.

The video expresses Judeo-Christian liberal civilization at it's finest.

And yes, some of the most acute expressions of Judeo-Christian civilization currently take place in Israel.

The Imam was invited but he had a stoning to go to.

As most of you know, Hallelujah was originally composed by Leonard Cohen. Most famously, the late Jeff Buckley started to cover it after hearing John Cale's version. It's a beautiful non-religious song that uses biblical imagery to great effect.
