Diario Judío México - Rosh Hashana begins this Sunday night, marking the start of the Jewish New Year. For those who observe, it’s a holiday of celebration and—like most milestones—a time to reflect and to plan ahead.
As we prepare ourselves to be worthy of being inscribed in the Book of Life on Yom Kippur, we contemplate the some of the more profound questions of identity and belonging. What do we hope to achieve? Who do we want to be in the coming year? What mistakes did we make, and how can we be better individuals, relatives, and members of the greater community?
As is often the case, High Holy Day traditions, services and the music they contain, are pathways to a deeper level of reflection, introspection and devotion—the sound of the shofar calling to us and heralding a new beginning.
We are pleased to be able to share with you our playlist of music for and inspired by the shofar in the hope that it will elevate your celebration.
Thank you for making 5779 a wonderful year for us! We hope that the music and Jewish culture that we’ve shared together will continue to enrich your life in 5780.
From all of us at the Milken Archive of Jewish music, we wish you and your family a Shanah Tovah U’metukah!
