Music and Songs

‚Äč

 

 

Every week Hazzan Porzecanski records melodies from a wide range of composers and e-mails them to the congregation in the form of a "Song of the Week". Congregants add them to their repertoire, and can then participate more fully in services. Below are many of these songs that we continue to sing on Shabbatot, Festivals, and the High Holy Days.
