Hi UGA Hillel, The High Holidays are coming up very soon! If anyone would like to learn the special Kiddush for Erev Rosh Hashannah, I am posting a link to the blessings (candle lighting and Kiddush), and a link to a recording of the melody, as sung by my friend and high school classmate, Amy Olson, now the director of the URI Hillel. (If you can't access the recording, please post about it, and I'll ask her to post the recording here on this page, if possible.)https://www.bethelmc.org/family-ed/Rosh%20Hashanah%20at%20Home.pdf https://soundcloud.com/lindaguitar/kiddush-for-rosh-hashanah-eve
