Worship with Us Prayers & Trope High Holiday Melody Guide

High Holiday Melody Guide

High Holiday Melody Guide

Welcome to my new library of Congregational melodies for the High Holidays. Below is a list of several melodies from the different services of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur that help to create our prayer experience. For many of us, the sounds of these melodies are like the shofar call -- a yearly reminder that it is time to gather once again as a community and re-establish our relationship with God.

As your Cantor it is my hope that we can share this musical experience of the High Holidays by singing many of these beautiful melodies together as a congregation.  Your collective voices have the power to lift the spiritual nature of our services and make these High Holy Days memorable ones for our entire community.

Wishing you a New Year filled with Health, Happiness and Peace,
Cantor Asa
