The Ultimate Kol Nidrei for Cantor, Choir, Organ, and Orchestra
Song of the Week • 4m 57s
Cantor Meir Finkelstein’s best-known melody at PAS is L’dor Vador, which we sing during our Shabbat musaf service. However, on Kol Nidrei, the largest setting of the eponymous prayer that we offer is also a Finkelstein tune. We hope you find this piece beautiful and moving and may you and your loved ones be sealed in the Book of Life.
Music: Meir Finkelstein, arr. Oran Eldor
Music Director: David Enlow
AV: Oscar Acevedo, Erik Van Batavia, Russell Miller
Video Editor: Tami Shaham
