At the initiative of the Chief Rabbi of France, René-Samuel Sirat, with the choir of the Great Synagogue of Paris, under the direction of Maurice Benhamou.


A french television program by Josy Eisenberg with the help of the Central Consistory and the Fondation du Judaïsme Français, presenting an excerpt from a liturgical concert filmed at the Buffault synagogue (Paris), 1985.
