The Kiddush  (Sanctification) is recited before the Sabbath morning meal.  It is sung here to the traditional melody by Rev. Louis C. Gerstein, of blessed memory, minister of the congregation from 1942 - 1988.

This recording was originally made in 1959 through the Tarry Memorial Fund of the Shearith Israel League.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.
