High Holyday Music

During the Holydays, our Music Director, Jim Rensink conduct the High Holyday Choir, featuring top professional musicians who have been part of our temple family for over a decade. The majestic musical nusach of the Holydays is augmented by the tradition of choral, cantorial and congregational settings. On Rosh Hashanah, we celebrate the sounds of the shofar with our congregational Shofar Choir. All ages are welcome to learn to blow the shofar and join our Shofar Choir. On Yom Kippur we feature the haunting sounds of Max Bruch’s Kol Nidre on solo cello, performed by New York Philharmonic cellist, Maria Kitsopoulos.  Our Cantor, Choirs, Music Director and guest musicians offer these magnificent settings of Holyday music helping our prayers truly soar during the Days of Awe.
