Family High Holy Days Music Playlists
To bring the music of the season into your homes, we have curated playlists of High Holy Days music. Below are links to Spotify playlists of the Music of the High Holy Days as well music that is High Holy Days “inspired”.

We will also be building a youth-community-created playlist by reaching out to families and asking them to associate a song on Spotify/YouTube/Vevo that is connected to an assigned prayer. For example, Modeh Ani => “Wake Up” by The Vamps. Keep an eye out for your assigned prayer in your inboxes in the near future!
