Israel Inspiration: Days of Awe Playlist

Tags: Music, Chaggim, Sarah Zadok

By Sarah Zadok

Prayer is a lot of things;
It is union.
Connectivity.
Flailing and finding.
Prayer is reaching.
Grabbing. Loosing.
Looking.
Tripping.
Bowing.
Slurring,
and Trying.
Mostly, for me, it’s about trying.

What follows are some of the songs that help me try harder and help me feel closer to what matters during these days between Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, these Days of Awe. I hope they can be of some service to you. At the very least, I hope you enjoy.

Kol Nidrei – Nadav Bachar.

Just listen.

Karav Yom – Eviytar Banai.

There is something about Eviytar’s voice that melts the hard spots in me. This song is from a debut album called “Ha Lev V’ha’Ma’ayan” – “The heart and the fountain.” The words in the song are attributed to Israel Ba’al Shem Tov.

“The day is coming that is not day and is not night.
My gratitude for You is great even though it is still night
We are keeping guard of your city all day and all night
Daylight illuminates the darkness of night.”

Back Porch - Lazar Lloyd

Promise Land – Trevor Hall.

We don’t read the parsha Zot HaBracha before Yom Kippur, but we’re gonna get to it soon. Among Moses’s last words to the Jewish people are: “Ashreicha Israel” – How fortunate are you Israel. “Never again has there arisen in Israel a prophet like Moses, whom G-d had known face to face.” This isn’t a song about Moses – it’s a song that reminds me how deeply he wanted the Promise Land. I want to want the Promise Land that deeply. I want to do the work it takes to get there.

Shanah Tovah!
