The Recorded Sound Archives (RSA) is a unit of FAU Libraries Special Collections department. We are located in the Wimberly Library on FAU's Boca Raton campus.

Originally established in 2002 as a small project dedicated to the preservation of recorded Jewish music, it has matured into a robust digitization operation for all types of sound recordings.

Notes The Holy Blossom Temple Singers, under the direction of Cantor Benjamin Z. Maissner, captures the many meanings of Rosh Hashanah in this beautiful and inspiring album. At once joyful and nostalgic, uplifting and life affirming, the songs reflect the depth of our religious and musical heritage. Among the sacred and secular works the cantor and chorus perform are Sh'ma, Avot G'vurot, Ki Lekach Tov, and of course Hal'luyah and Adon Olam.

Recordings restricted by copyright will only play 45 seconds to give you a sense of what that recording originally sounded like. These recordings can be identified by the words (Research Station) in the music player.
