Nothing gets me in the spirit of Yom Kippur more than listening to vintage Carlebach. In that spirit, I ask forgiveness from anyone I may have offended, intentionally or unintentionally. In the grand scheme of things, the differences among us are so insignificant. We're not Joe, we're Yossele from Cracow. May we all be inscribed for Munkaczer passports.

Gmar chasimah tovah.

I've been listening to Aron Razel. Especially the song from the tefilahs after Unesaneh Tokef (from his Zman Hageulah CD), "Adam Yesodo Mai afar, v'sofo mai afar..."

haunting.

Dilbert,
Yossele and Munkaczer passport are references to classic Carlebach stories.

Begging your pardon, but I am Adam, the Litvak from Slonim :)

Still, have a G.G.Y, Reb Ben.

PS: For me the ultimate mood making music for the Yomim Noraim is (a) any of the great chazonim singing a set piece like "Kol Nidrei," "Unisaneh Tokef," "Hamelech," the musaf kaddish, etc; or (b) Avraham Fried's "Adaraba," ...she'yehay hakol nachas ruach, l'fonecha...

Yeah, yeah, nobody from Cracow in my family either. I was under Shlomo's spell. BTW, didn't you once mention that you had some Yekke blood? (Some of us are paying attention.)

Mrs. Baynonim is 100 percent Yek; I have some of it on the distaff side, but the forbearers I knew (and the ancestors they told about) were heavy-duty misnagdim from Slonim. If my grandfather z'l knew where I daven most every shabbos... Hoo boy.

It binds. It binds.
