High Holiday Liturgy

While most liturgy for the Jewish High Holidays (Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur) is in Hebrew, some Jewish communities have translated prayers into their local Jewish language. This page presents some images and audio clips of that phenomenon in Judeo-Persian and multiple examples of texts and recordings from Ladino / Judeo-Spanish.

Avinu Malkenu

Muestro Padre i muestro Rey
Oye a muestra boz i apiadate sovre nozotros
Muestro Padre i muestro Rey

Muestro Padre i muestro Rey
No mos tornes en vazio de delantre de ti
