United Synagogue to Broadcast Services for High Holy Days

Download PDF for this date

Holiday services hitherto restricted to synagogues will be made available to all who have access to the radio. The United Synagogue of America has made arrangements for broadcasting complete programs for relgious services during all Jewish holidays. The programs will be sent out from stations WEAF and WMAS.

The program will include an address by a rabbi explaining the significance of the Holy Day, a rendition of the complete musical ritual of the particular service by a leading cantor and choir, and the recital of an appropriate Jewish legend or folk tale from the Talmud.

Appropriate programs will be broadcast on September 6, 13 and 27, which are the Thursday evenings preceeding Rosh Hashono, Yom Kippur and the Feast of the Tabernacles.
