Et Sha'arei Ratzon - Rosh Hashanah

Performed by Rev. Abraham Lopes Cardozo & Choir

-:-- / -:--

Written by Judah ibn Abbas in the 12th century, this poem is a dramtic and emotional re-telling of the story of the binding of Isaac.  It is performed here by Rev. Cardozo, of blessed memory, and the Shearith Israel Choir.

This recording was originally made in 1959 through the Tarry Memorial Fund of the Shearith Israel League.  It was re-released as part of 3 CD set produced by the League in 2003.  The Shearith Israel League is the civic and social arm of the congregation.  This set is available for purchase at our online store, or, by contacting the Synagogue office.
