A Song for the New Year Sung by Communities Around the World

From NYC to the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh, from Ghana and Belarus, Turkey, Israel, Guatemala and beyond, 92Y would like to wish you a “Shana Tovah” (a “Happy New Year”) with the release of “Reset,” a new song and video for Rosh Hashanah 2019-5780.

“Reset” features music and lyrics by Abigail Pogrebin and Noah Aronson and was shot on mobile phones by members of Jewish communities around the world.

Participants recorded either the entire song or smaller sections and sent their footage to 92Y’s Digital Content team.

Rabbi Rubinstein who commissioned the song comments, “It is important that this video conveys joy, uplift, and renewal in order to help us take account, reset priorities and commit to better days in the year ahead.”

Major support is provided by Andrew and Sandi Farkas with additional support from David Shapiro and Abby Pogrebin.

In light of the temper of our times it was important to have a song that conveyed joy, uplift, and renewal. The New Year provides the opportunity for each of us to take account, reset priorities and commit to better days. Our hope is that the song helps in all of that.

– A New Year Prayer from Rabbi Peter Rubinstein, 92Y Director of Jewish Community and Bronfman Center for Jewish Life
