Hear about the latest regarding this pandemic. What is the latest in the Sarasota/Manatee area and how are the local physicians and hospitals dealing with the pandemic?

Pt. II September 9

What better way to prepare for the High Holidays than to learn about the liturgy of the Machzor and the beautiful melodies that accompany the prayers. There are few other times in the course of the year when we experience such musical beauty as during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Join with Cantor Dardashti and learn more about the prayers and the magnificent music of the High Holidays as you sing along with our High Holiday Hazzan.
