It is our incredible privilege to lead the Prospect Heights Shul in tefilot over Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, especially in this difficult year. While our typical response to moments of uncertainty and upheaval would be to gather together, to raise our voices in prayer and support, this year we face the unprecedented challenge of incorporating social distancing measures to ensure our collective health and safety.
We have assembled a playlist of niggunim and songs that we will feature in the davening over Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, many of which should be already familiar from past years. For those of you who will be attending in person, we invite you to listen to them in advance, and then hum and clap along during the tefilot. For those who will not be able to join us, we hope that this will be a warm reminder of the PHS experience.
PHS High Holidays Playlist
We hope that our prayers will serve to inspire and comfort and, most importantly, will be answered for a joyful, healthy and blessed New Year.
With much love and gratitude,
The High Holidays Chazanim
