Rosh Hashana’s delicious “Triple Scoop”


From Rabbi Mark’s 5775 Family Service:

Rosh Hashana’s delicious “Triple Scoop” (3 sections of the musaf/additional service) offers each of us, no matter our age, opportunities to reflect, to remember and to hope.  And, just when you thought you’ve heard it all, check out this “jam band” version of our traditional “Avinu Malkeinu” on youtube by the band Phish:

Since this year’s Yom Kippur corresponds with Shabbat, we’ll only hear one of my holiday favorites at the very end of services on Saturday evening.  May its refrain inspire us in the new year:

“Avinu Malkeinu, Our Holy One, be gracious to us and respond to us.  What are our actions?  Treat us with charity and kindness and sustain us!”

G’mar hatima tova/a good and complete soul-sealing,

Rabbi Mark Melamut
