Hear Our (muted) Voices – Shema Koleynu in the Age of Zoom, Part 4: Gates of the Righteous and the Book of Life

The High Holiday liturgy gains power when recited by hundreds of voices in unison. This year the poems, pleas, and praises of our prayers will sound different as we hear them over electronic platforms and recite them to ourselves in our apartments. Join Hazzan Hirschhorn and Rabbi Kalmanofsky to study some classic High Holiday passage, and think together about what they will mean when recited during Covid isolation.
