Sure, it’s football and spooky season, but for Jewish people, it’s currently the Days of Awe, a 10-day period after Rosh Hashanah 5780 (yes we are in the ’80s again for Jewish new year) where people reflect on all the things they did in their year. The final day, starting Tuesday (Oct. 8) evening and running through Wednesday (Oct. 9), is a 25-hour fast for Yom Kippur. Widely known as the holiest day in the year for the Jewish religion, it is said that fasting on Yom Kippur will clean your slate for the entire year.
While many people spend the day praying in synagogues around the country, this former Los Angeles rapper turned Tel Aviv-Yafo transplant alternatively created a Yom Kippur playlist for those who don’t spend the day in the synagogue. It features broad array of forgiveness jams from Matisyahu, Leonard Cohen, Justin Bieber, Demi Lovato, Portugal. The Man, Killswitch Engage, Hoodie Allen, Eden Derso, Nipsey Hussle, Lizzo, Alvarez Kings and more. You can even catch some Kosha in there.
