Songs include:

Mi Pi El - Yavo Addir Bimhera - Haleluyah Halelu et Shem Adonay -

Alef Bet Gimel Dalet - Hatan Naim Ale - Bereshit Bara

Among the pieces which can be heard on the site are those from
Hassidic, Samaritan, Ashkenazi and Sephardi communities in Israel
and tunes from other countries such as
India, Afghanistan, Yemen, Tunisia, Morocco, Iraq,
Lithuania, Georgia, Bulgaria, Italy and Greece.

The National Sound Archives of the Jewish National and University Library
was established in 1964 as the music department of the Jewish National and University Library.

The archives records and preserves the musical traditions of the various ethnic Jewish communities within Israel and throughout the Jewish world, as well of non-Jewish communities in Israel.

The Succot “treat” from the library is part of the ongoing David and Fela Shapell Family Digitization Project, which is intended to make the library's collections more accessible to the public worldwide
