The Jewish Service Heard Around the World

The New York Times yesterday profiled the cantor who sang at this 1944 service in a battlefield in Germany, the first Jewish service heard since the Nazis had overtaken Germany. The YouTube clip has had thousands of hits. The man who sang the Yigdal prayer at that service over 60 years ago, is singing the same at Rosh Hashanah services in his temple in New York this weekend.

L'Shana Tova.
