Our New Temple Emanuel Video: "R.E.P.E.N.T."

Once again, our incredible Temple Emanuel Staff Team has come together to bring you our semi(?)-annual greeting in advance of Rosh HaShanah.  With apologies to Otis Redding - who wrote the original, and Aretha Franklin - who made it a classic, we bring you R.E.P.E.N.T.

If you like what you see, share it with others.  Paste this link on your Social Media pages:

New words by Rabbi Joe Black
Temple Emanuel, Denver,CO

What’ll you do to greet the New Year?
We’re all getting ready to see you hear.
The Shofar calls us - it’s time to Repent (Just a little bit)

Oh those prayers….They come from our hearts.
If you’ve made some mistakes you can get a new start
Our hearts are open and our prayers sincere
It’s time to Repent (just a little bit)

People are coming, like you and me
With our new prayer books in our sanctuary
Rosh HaShanah Unplugged and Shema Koleynu
L’shanah Tovah from Shwayder too
It’s time to Repent (Just a little bit)

Apples and honey, for a sweet New Year
We all can’t wait, to welcome you here
The old year’s quickly, coming to a close
What the New Year will bring - nobody knows
It’s time to Repent (Just a little bit)
R.E.P.E.N.T. I’ll pray for you if you pray for me.
R.E .P.E.N.T. – From the 720 and the 303

Shanah Tovah – 8x
