  • Rabbi Kraus reflects on his rabbinical vocation, as well as his musical and other avocations. He selected the song "Traveler's Prayer" from Jacob Spike Kraus's "Cornerstones" album.

  • Cantor Treitman spoke about the importance of music during services at Beth El.  Her selection for Chagigah is the Zamir Chorale's rendition of Salamone Rossi's "Hallelujah Halleli Nafshi."
