Music for the High Holidays is a new one-hour program for Rosh Hashanah (which begins at sundown on Sunday the 16th) and Yom Kippur.  It includes both traditional and composed music from Jewish services--including a brand new recording of Kol Nidre featuring violinist Itzhak Perlman -- as well as concert music based on High Holidays melodies.

Written and hosted by Classics for Kids host Naomi Lewin, Music for the High Holidays also explains a bit about the Jewish new year and its traditions.
