IDF Chief Cantor Sings Yom Kippur Prayer

Today is Yom Kippur, the holiest day of the Jewish year, a day when Jews gather in prayer  and beseech God for forgiveness. Check out this amazing video clip produced especially for the Jewish High Holidays, showing the IDF chief cantor and IDF soldiers singing the prayer “Unetanneh Tokef” in the Great Synagogue in Tel Aviv. The video also features footage of the Yom Kippur War and one of its heroes, Brig. Gen. (res.) Avigdor Kahalani, who was a battalion commander in the Armored Brigade, fought in the battle of the Valley of Tears, and was awarded a Medal of Valor.
