Music at the Temple
Music provides a gateway to experiencing the sacred. And in any
Jewish worship service, if liturgy is the body, it is the music that is the
soul. Through our musical expression during services, we seek to invite every
member of our congregational family to experience, celebrate, be inspired by,
and find comfort in the spiritual melodies of our people – past and present –
from places near and far. Through traditional chant, traditional melodies,
artistic and classical expressions of music, contemporary arrangements and
melodies – as well as through a variety of instrumentation – the clergy,
professional musical leadership, and lay leadership of Temple Beth Shalom seek
to bring the full spectrum of musical richness of our people to life for
everyone in our temple family – young and mature.
In the ideal, we are
constantly growing and enriching our own personal and congregational musical
experiences through new and exciting forms of musical expression – opening new
gateways to experiencing the world of sacred music.
