Shirei Chag: Songs of Joy
Chag Sameach uMoadim L’simcha!   Happy Holiday and Time to Rejoice!

The Jewish calendar is punctuated by the cycle of holidays throughout the year. Whether it is the High Holy Days, the three major festivals or the minor historical holidays, there are always songs that enliven and enrich our celebrations. It is my hope that this recording will serve as an educational tool to increase your familiarity, participation, and enjoyment throughout the year. This CD was inspired by all of the children at Temple Sinai who love to sing, and is intended to bring their enthusiasm into your homes and the Temple Sinai community. May these songs bring you and your families seasons of joy. 

L’shalom, 

Cantor Ilene Keys
