VIDEO: Jewish songs and “Moshiach” are played by the British military band at the memorial for Jewish servicemen

This past Sunday, a military band performed several Jewish and Israeli songs, including the well-known Moshiach song by Mordechai Ben David, at a memorial service for Jewish service members who had perished while serving their country in the World Wars.

The ceremony was held at the Cenotaph in downtown London, the primary memorial site for all British veterans, and featured participation from Holocaust survivors and British Chief Rabbi Efraim Mirvis. King George V, who honored Jewish soldiers’ contributions to the First World War and ordered that they have a unique Sunday ceremony, instituted a special ceremony for Jewish soldiers in 1934. (in deference to the Jewish sabbath and as opposed to the regular ceremony which takes place on Saturday).

Veterans and the relatives of those who had died marched together in the 2022 march, which marked the 101st anniversary of the inaugural memorial ceremony.
