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 day fades and at dusk it will be Friday. The father will sing the Kiddush, and the mother will bench the Shabbat candles. This is what is written in the Book of Life, Besefer Chaim, and these are the beautiful songs of Zmiros, the table songs of Jewish family life.

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.
