Avinu Malkeinu

 
For his 90th birthday, President Shimon Peres wanted Barbra Streisand to sing Avinu Malkeinu for him. This prayer is traditionally uttered on the High Holy days, fast days, and in certain communities, on the Sabbath.
 
We bring you a recording from Yaakov Michael's record collection, which is held in the National Library. This is a traditional Ashkenazi High Holy day version, to a melody by Cantor Max Janowski.
