Mizrachi sings...

Singing is a big part of our prayers in Shul. Some of the most moving Jewish compositions are a cappella choral arrangements that capture the beauty of spiritual supplication. But today's congregants want to be more than just bystanders, consuming a beautiful performance. Each of us wants to be part of the experience. We want to participate, not just observe.

Mizrachi Bondi has launched a world first - a project to transform the entire congregation into a choir.

Rather than delegate the singing to a formal group with formal arrangements, dedicated volunteers from the Mizrachi community gather weekly to learn the key songs from the tefillah and their harmonies and then record them, capturing some of the energy of the live prayers. (Of course, recording the services is forbidden on Shabbat and Yom Tov).

If you'd like to learn the songs with harmonies, guides to each song are also provided.


Tuesday night sessions...

Avinu Malkeinu/Our Father Our King - the theme of the Days of Awe, the Yamim Noraim

Yigdal - the closing song for Maariv on the nights of Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur

Veye'esoyu Kol - a beautiful poem from Musaf on Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur. Shlomo Carlebach also sung this same tune for the words "Leshana Haba Beyerushalayim / Next Year in Jerusalem"
