Join us this Sunday for a morning session looking at some of the classic High Holy Day tunes – and where they’ve changed – with Rabbi Jonathan, and hearing them demonstrated by Maurice – we might even get to sing along with them! This is a great way to familiarise yourself with the new books and adjustments in the tunes, and to commence the month of Elul with the sounds of the High Holy Days in your heart.
