This two-DVD set contains a condensed version of the Jewish High Holy Day services. Each DVD is divided into two 1-hour parts. One DVD includes a Rosh Hashanah evening service and a Rosh Hashanah morning service. The other DVD includes a Kol Nidre service and Yom Kippur day services, including a morning service, a memorial service, and a concluding service. The services were staged and filmed at Temple Sinai, in Washington, D.C., in 2008 with the participation of Rabbi Mindy A. Portnoy, Cantor Laura T. Croen, and the Temple Sinai Choir. Temple Sinai is a Reform Jewish congregation affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ).
