Madonna requests 'slicha'

The most famous student of the global network of Kabbalah Centers, Madonna has made headlines in Israel with videos and concerts featuring Jewish symbols and letters from the Hebrew alphabet.
She may be a devoted Kabbalah student, but pop diva Madonna could use a little work on her Hebrew accent. Hebrew is among the languages that gets its due in the singer's latest video, "Sorry," which went into rotation on MTV, VH1 and other music channels last week. Set mostly in a roller disco and featuring the 47-year-old pop star in purple and white leotards, the video also shows the singer whispering "slicha" - Hebrew for "sorry" or "excuse me" - among requests for forgiveness in French, Russian, Spanish and other languages. The most famous student of the global network of Kabbalah Centers, Madonna has made headlines in Israel with videos and concerts featuring Jewish symbols and letters from the Hebrew alphabet. Earlier this month, the singer announced an upcoming concert tour in support of her latest album, Confessions on a Dance Floor. Specific dates and locations have not yet been made public, but if the tour takes the singer to Israel, it won't be her first visit. Raised Catholic in Detroit, Michigan, Madonna made a widely publicized visit to Israel in September 2004, touring Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Safed.
