High Holy Day Prayers

The High Holidays are quickly approaching. To help you feel more at home in services, we are providing two recordings of prayers that are chanted on Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur - "Chatzi Kaddish" and "Avot V'Imahot."

These two prayers are sung at virtually every service on the Days of Awe. They are recorded here by Cantor Vicky Glikin using a special High Holiday melody heard only at this time of year. We hope that you enjoy these chants and that they will help you to get in the mood for Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.
