Australian rock icon Jimmy Barnes will perform at Sydney’s Central Synagogue’s cantorial concert later this month.The former lead singer of Cold Chisel will pull a surprise out of the bag but there is no clue as to what it will be according to Rabbi Mendel Kastel,CEO of the Jewish House and a good friend of Barnes.

Rabbi Kastel told J-Wire: “In May, Jimmy and I were dining at the Hakoah Club and met up with Shimon Farkas who was eating at another table with Tel Aviv’s Chief Rabbi Israel Lau. All four of us engaged in conversation and Shimon mentioned the Symphony for the Soul event being planned at the Central for August. Jimmy has since accepted an invitation to perform at the shule’s concert.”

This will not be the first time Barnes has sung in a synagogue. A few years ago he entertained a packed Great Synagogue.

On December 1, he will join other entertainers at the Sofitel Wentworth Hotel performing at the Jewish House’s Gala Dinner.

Symphony for the Soul will take place at the Central Synagogue on August-20. Details in Up and Coming Events
