Ring in 5781 with some Kosher style tunes

We have lots of fun content for the High Holy Days! Check out our five musical recommendations to set the mood for your holiday.

1. Our spotify Playlist

Music is our favorite part of High Holy Days over here at Kosher Style Records. So we made a playlist of music that we’ve produced from HH liturgy or otherwise a reflection of the social justice spirit of the holidays. Which ones speak to you the most?

2. ELLIE FLIER’S “MAY WE”

The final track on Ellie’s album Pray for Open Eyes, “May We” is a reflection on our actions of the past and how we might do better in the new year.

3. Cantor Rebekah Mirsky’s “Our Father Our King Our Mother Our Queen”

Cantor Rebekah Mirsky wrote a beautiful version of the traditional Avinu Malkeinu liturgy — with a special twist.

4. Josh Goldberg & Shira Fox’s “Shema Koleinu”

On Yom Kippur we sing Shema Koleinu, a prayer of supplication, asking God to hear our collective voice, to grant us compassion and mercy in the new year. Josh Goldberg and Shira Fox interpret this prayer with a beautiful new melody, explaining that they tried to capture the feeling of yearning to be heard, understood, and forgiven in the music. 

The piece was also chosen for Transcontinental Music’s High Holy Days Anthology.

5. Rabbi Jonathan Aaron & Cantor Lizzie Weiss’ “Open My Heart”

Every year Rabbi Jonathan Aaron pens a new theme song for Temple Emanuel of Beverly Hills’ High Holy Days. This year’s song “Open My Heart” is intended to help us enter this season with positive intentions towards reflection and renewal. In these times, when every aspect of our lives seems in flux and the only certainty is uncertainty, let’s open our hearts together and find our way through.

Open My Heart (2020)

“Open up my Heart,” Temple Emanuel’s High Holy Day theme song, is intended to help us enter this season with positive intentions towards reflection and renewal. In these times, when every aspect of our lives seems in flux, and the only certainty is uncertainty, let’s open our hearts together and find our way through. From concept to this video, this project has been such a great experience. I am privileged to work with Cantor Lizzie Weiss (my cantor partner) , Josh Goldberg (producer, keyboard, vocals) and our usual musicians like John Ferarro (drums) and Nick Campbell (bass), and Pietown records’ Keith Armstrong who always makes the music sound so good. Special thanks this year to Alex Bonelli, who did the camera and editing.
