A 22-strong combined choir of St Martin's church, Shenley and Radlett and Bushey Reform Synagogue recently performed in Radlett with songs from both Jewish and Christian traditions. 

Members of the church choir took time to learn some Hebrew and both choirs enjoyed singing pieces ranging from those composed in the mid 1800's to those that had only been created in the last couple of years.

Rabbi Paul Freedman said: "The CCJ was established in the 1940's to promote religious and cultural understanding, to work for the elimination of discrimination and to promote religious and racial harmony.

"Events such as this concert help cement the good relations we share with our Christian neighbours."

That's more like it. The more people get together on projects like this, the better.

Just to point out that there are plenty of links both 'official' and personal between different religions, denominations and people of different faiths on a personal level also.

Whilst this is a great event for those involved just because it has been mentioned in the WO doesnt mean that no interaction happens at others times.
