About Us

Melodies For Yamim Noraim 

​​​Recorded by Cantor Judy Ribnick with the help of Rabbi Carie Carter and Angela Weisl, we are pleased to share these songs and melodies with you in the hopes of enhancing your experience of the Days of Awe. They include old favorites and new melodies for our community. We look forward to singing these and many other songs with you on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur when we gather for what we hope will be the spirited, participatory, inspiring davenning that has been a hallmark of High Holy Days at PSJC.

Most of the texts of these songs are available in Machzor Lev Shalem edited by Rabbi Edward Feld and in supplemental packets we will distribute on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. All page numbers refer to the Machzor Lev Shalem. The songs are presented in two sections. The first section is in the general order in which we encounter them in the service; and second in alphabetical order. Italics represent text and or translation of text. You can search for the newest additions by glancing to the side of each title where you will find the year it was added to our Resource page.

May the melodies of this season enter our souls, allowing each of us - as individuals and as a community - to search our hearts and bring ourselves to a place where we can embrace and celebrate the New Year. Shana Tova U’metukah! May 5777 be filled with goodness and sweetness for us all!

- Rabbi Carie Carter and Cantor Judy Ribnick
