September 14, 2011 - Meanings and Melodies of the High Holy Days, Part 1: Un'taneh Tokef

Arguably the most challenging liturgy during the Days of Awe is the Un'taneh Tokef, recognizable to all through its decisive "who will live and who will die" refrain. Rabbi Lawrence A. Hoffman, will teach us of the layers of meaning found within the text and scholarly responses it evokes. Cantor Alane Katzew will elucidate the ways in which various settings of the prayer suggest those meanings and lift up the power of the words.
