Preparing for Yom Kippur

Early this morning I was looking for some good music, as is well known that Rabbainu said that today our main way of binding ourselves to our Holy Father in Heaven is through music, so I remember that my good friend Zivi Ritchi just gave me a bunch of albums from Shlomo Carlbach that he fixed up. As Divine Providence had it, the album I select (#10 - moments of holiness) is a story R' Shlomo tells of a russian Jew who survived Siberia, and in the middle of this hell he meets another Jew - for the first time in 5 years - and the Jew tells him that TONIGHT IS YOM KIPPUR!!! So they sing Kol Nidray and all the prisoners harmonize, and it turns out that the sadistic captain was Jewish, and the captain breaks down and sings for them, and begs this Russian Jew to pray for him at the Western Wall. It's mamash gevald, I would put up the tracks but I don't want to infringe on Zivi's parnassa (you can hear R' Shlomo's Kol Nidray here:
