Kol Nidre @ Home

If You Can't Make It To Shul:  Even (especially) if you can't make it to shul for Kol Nidre - for whatever reason, or for no reason at all - you can still participate with Klal Yisrael.

First - to help establish the mood and theme  - here is Jacqueline du Pre performing Max Bruch's Kol Nidre.

Jacqueline Mary du Pré OBE (26 January 1945 – 19 October 1987)
was a British cellist, regarded as one of the greatest players of the instrument. She is particularly associated with Elgar's Cello Concerto in E Minor; her interpretation has been described as "definitive" and "legendary."  Her career was cut short by multiple sclerosis, which forced her to stop performing at 28 and led to her premature death.
Max Christian Friedrich Bruch (6 January 1838 – 2 October 1920)
also known as Max Karl August Bruch, was a German Romantic composer and conductor who wrote over 200 works, including three violin concertos, the first of which has become a staple of the violin repertoire.

Next - here is OurJewish, which offers

live, streaming Yom Kippur evening services here at 6:15 pm New Mexico time.

Abq Jew wishes everyone an easy fast but a meaningful day.
