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 Cantor Schwimmer presents the Torah and Haftorah blessings – both before and after – as well as sample readings from both the Torah and Haftorah in this album created by the Judaica Sound Archives® from the cantor's “home recordings.” He also gives an example of how each Haftorah trope sounds. Unfortunately, the Torah trope was not recorded.

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.
