At Temple Beth El, a balance of traditional Jewish music blended with contemporary styles encourages participation from the whole congregation, raising our prayers to a higher level of spirituality. Our Cantorial team, musical groups and guest professional musicians create a feeling of ruach (spirit) that helps to make Shabbat and holiday experiences more vibrant and more meaningful.
Each member of our Cantorial Team brings a unique perspective and style to our services.
Temple Beth El regularly brings in exciting guests for concerts for our members and community, including Dan Nichols, the Maccabeats, and more.
Whether you have sung professionally or just have a vibrant passion for singing, there is a place for you in our Temple Program. If you have any questions, contact Cantorial Soloists Jake Harris or Michelle Cohen.
If you have a passion for singing, and want to use music as a means of spiritual exploration and expression, the Singing Circle is for you! Under the musical direction of Cantorial Soloists Michelle Auslander Cohen and Jake Harris, members of this re-envisioned choir experience at Beth El will learn new music, sing at various worship services and performances in the community, join our Masterclasses, and have social opportunities within the Singing Circle.
For those who have sung professionally, can read music, can hold and improvise a harmony, and are comfortable with four-part harmonies, the Beth El Vocal Ensemble is the place for you! Members will perform at concerts and in worship services, will be able to join our Masterclasses, and will have opportunities for social engagement. Auditions will be held for placement in this group.
