Preparing for the King

In preperation for Rosh Hashana, the Yeshiva travelled to Old City of Jerusalem, the heart of the world, to prepare for the new year. To begin the night, we had an uplifting kumztiz with the legendary Chaim Dovid. A student of Reb Shlomo Carlebach and pioneer of Jewish Music, Chaim Dovid lead us in song and dance. We also had had the pleasure of having Sruli Solomon play the Mandolin and our very own Rebbe, Rabbi Jonny Friedman on the drums. After a truly beautiful time in the Diaspora Yeshiva Hall and Maariv in the historic Diaspora Yeshiva, we made our way down to the Kotel for Selichos where we joined all of Am Yisrael: Sefardim, Ashkenazim, Chassidim, Religious Zionist and secular Jews, all united in lifting their voices in prayer to Hashem at the holiest place on earth. Am Yisrael Chai!
