California's Temple Judea Revisits the 1960s with Rosh Hashanah Dreamin'


We thought we were done with Rosh Hashanah music videos for the year now that we are post-Rosh Hashanah and counting down to Yom Kippur, but we found Rosh Hashanah Dreamin' from Temple Judea in Tarzana, California, and just couldn't put it on the shelf until next year.

The temple's rabbis, cantors, staff, and dancing congregants take us back to 1965 and memories of The Mamas and the Papas singing California Dreamin'. Dressed in outfits to remind us of the fashions of the 60s, they launch into a vibrant renditon of the song with all new lyrics suitable for the High Holy Days.

Enjoy!
