High Holiday Readings

High Holiday Readings

Chanting from the Torah during High Holy Day services?

Listen to recordings by our very own Ariann Weitzman to learn how to pronounce the Hebrew and chant. The readings are from the Reconstructionist Machzor, Kol Haneshemah, available from the Reconstructionist Press.

The audio for each Aliyah is an mp3 file. Most computers will simply play them if you click the links; if not, many programs will play mp3s, including iTunes, Winamp, Windows Media Player, amaroK, and many, many more.

The text for each Aliyah is an Adobe Acrobat PDF. Most computers will be displayed them automically if you click the links. PDFs can be read by free tools such as Adobe Reader and several other applications.
