The Tefillos

The Tefillos

The multitude of Yidden fasting and davening on Yom Kippur, wearing their Kitels and Teleisim, is an awesome experience to behold. The Rebbe will personally lead the tefillos of Kol Nidrei, Maariv, Musaf and Neilah, as the thousands of men women and children gathered in the huge shul follow the emotional and heartfelt tefillos.
