This year the Judaica Sound Archives at FAU Libraries in Boca Raton, Florida is celebrating the High Holy Days by highlighting one of our favorite albums: Ye Shall Rejoice on your Festivals.

This album, recorded by Shimon and Ilana Gewirtz in the early 1970s, feature their children, Aviva (7 yrs old at the time of this recording), and Shira, who was 5.

Shimon and Ilana Gewirtz are well-known in the field of Jewish music and education. This family-friendly album celebrates the month of Tishrey and the five holidays we celebrate during this time: Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Sh’mini Atzehret, and Simchat Torah.

The warm family atmosphere as these parents celebrate the holidays with songs and lessons for their children is a wonderful reminder of how Jewish traditions are passed from one generation to the next.
