New Zealand festival omits 'Israel' from musical words

JTA - The long-time director of an arts festival in New Zealand has apologized for removing the word “Israel” from a song in the musical “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat,” scheduled to be performed there.

The phrase “Children of Israel are never alone” in the song “Close Every Door,” which is performed by Joseph and a choir of children, was altered to read “Children of Kindness.”
