The Freygish scale is the 5th mode of the harmonic minor scale. Because of it's construction it is called "altered phrygian"

D Eb F# G A Bb C D

Ourside of klezmer music, the most famous example of this scale is in Saint-Saen's Baccanale:

A Bb A G F# F# A G F# Eb D D

The Misheberach scale is the 4th mode of the harmonic minor scale. It is also called "altered lydian"

D E F G# A B C D

These are the most common scales in Klezmer music.
