Mazal Tov to King Charles III !!
What an honour it is to be living in Britain during the time of the coronation of King Charles III. King Charles is respectful of belief and faith, all faiths.
The Torah acknowledges the merit that it is to see a monarch. Jewish law requires that a person should say a bracha upon seeing a king or queen. The bracha is "Blessed are You, L‑rd our G‑d, King of the universe, Who has given from His glory to flesh and blood"
By learning to respect a flesh and blood king and/or queen, the Torah tell us that we gain a better understanding of how to respect the king of all kings, Hashem, (G-d) himself in all His glory!
The Jewish community have composed a special tune to the prayer Adon Olam for this special occasion which I share below. Also, this coming Shabbat, the coronation day, shuls (synagogues) all over will be saying a special prayer of our Majesty King Charles III and the Queen Consort Camila. The Chief Rabbi Lord Mervis composed a special prayer for this event.
Our own Rabbi Jacobs had a chance to greet King Charles III this week. What a memorable moment for all of us.
Mrs Lesser who was a young girl when Queen Elizabeth was crowned, spoke during assembly about her memories of that very special day. Did you know that King Charles III will be anointed with pure olive oils following in the tradition of all Jewish kings?
Enjoy being part of living history!
