An old-new sound for the New Year
With thanks: Ruth
The traditional prayer Anenu (Answer Us) is a feature of this time of the Jewish year - a time of repentance. After a month of Selichot (asking for forgiveness), every observant Jew is ready to begin the New Year with a 'clean spiritual slate'.
This rendition illustrates how in Israel today ancient prayers from the oriental synagogue have been jazzed up and fused with modern pop to give a unique 'Mizrahi' sound.
Shana tova, tisku leshanim rabot !
