10 best Kol Nidre Videos

I love Kol Nidre, I love the emotion and the tune is an especially good one that I tend to hum when hiking alone in the high Sierra to ward off the bears. It also happens to be one of the best songs for chazan’s (cantors) to sing and it’s hard to find a Jew who doesn’t like some good old fashioned chazzanus.

Moshe Oysher is one of my favorites from the Yiddish theater era and I’m a huge fan.

Neil Diamond doing Kol Nidre? Here he is doing it in the Jazz Singer and it’s pretty rad.

Hefgot and Pearlman, doesn’t get much better than that.

Kol Nidrei at the Central Synagogue

I’m a big kol nidre fan, but that still doesn’t mean I’ve even touched upon the thousands of videos there are of various cantors doing their thing on you tube. Just found this gem of Boaz Davidoff this year.

Sholomo Carlebach doing his thing.

Yossele Rosenblatt needs no introduction

Richard Tucker doing the most opera-type of Kol Nidre I could find.

I think I’ve posted this before, but the Kol Nidre by Perry Como is really nicely done.

    Toss in Harry Belafonte or Nat King Cole and we have a minyan. Personally like Helfgot.

    I love this song and my favorite rendition is by Johnny Mathis.
