Nothing stirs the neshama like the sounds and melodies of the Yamim Noraim davening. Here at Beth Jacob, we are privileged to have exceptional and dedicated Chazzanim who have developed a special sound and style.

Over the past several years, in an effort to familiarize the community - both new and longtime members - with our unique blend of melodies, Chazan Yonasan Gavant, together with Chazan Ari Leifer, has prepared recordings of many Tefillos that we sing on Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur.

These songs are available to stream above on this page, on our Soundcloud Page, and on Spotify.

By listening and familiarizing yourself with these melodies ahead of time, we hope you will feel more connected to the davening when you encounter them in shul. Of course, they are also a good way to help us get in proper frame of mind as we approach the holiest days of the year.

Wishing you and your family a Kesiva V’Chasima Tova!
