Yom Kippur

Kol Nidre ... sung by the cantor on Yom Kippur eve, a prayer sung for hundreds of years, simple Aramaic words and a melody ... recorded by Perry Como and Johnny Mathis ...sung to perfection by Al Jolson inthe very first talking picture "The Jazz Singer" (and no, Neil Diamond's remake didn't do it justice)...

A song to touch the Jewish heart and the Jewish soul...
