It really depends on who's leading services, and

melodies, and we've posted some resources here to get you jump started.

tracks recorded by members of our community. Obviously there are many
ways to sing all of this liturgy, and this page will grow over time. Feel
free to send in your recordings!
Thank you to Andy and Emily Shapiro Katz for these Shabbat recordings.
