Words from Cantor Aaron Shifman

In keeping with the rich tradition of music at B'nai Jeshurun Congregation, we are very proud to present a wonderful Music Series for 2021.  Thanks to the generosity of Harold and Sandy Levine, trustees of the Daniel and Ethel Hamburger Fund, we have been blessed to bring upper-tier talent from all over the world to our synagogue for more than a decade. Unlike past concerts, due to the pandemic and its restrictions, the upcoming performances will be "virtual" on Zoom. We also have a very talented congregation and, as such, offer the children's Zamir Choir, a Professional Choir, and a Shabbat Rocks band during the year. Please check the links for a more in-depth look at our series, featuring performers and dates. At B'nai Jeshurun, we understand the universal power and appeal of music. Whether in person or in your living room, music connects heart and soul.

Shabbat Rocks

Shabbat Rocks! brings together a live band with Cantor Aaron Shifman  playing some of today’s most upbeat Jewish music. Multiple musical genres are woven through the service, highlighting text from each of the Psalms, which creates an energizing and engaging service. Shabbat Rocks! takes place the third Friday of the month between April and August at 7:00 pm. For those of you that plan to stay at home and enjoy Shabbat Rocks! online, you can click the links below for helpful resources:

B'nai Jeshurun Choirs

We offer two opportunities for our members to participate in services through our choirs. 

Zamir Choir

Our Zamir Children's choir is led by noted director Sheri Gross. The choir features students in grades 1-6. Practices takes place during the school year on Tuesday from 5:15-6:00pm and they perform the first Friday of each month between November and May (except for December and January), which also happens to be birthday Shabbat too. This is a great way for children to learn the tunes of the Friday evening service and also have opportunities to have solos and sing with friends. They also have fun singing parodies and making up new ones too. For more information, contact Sheri Gross.

 

Hear the Live Stream of our Zamir Choir on Friday, February 5 at 6:00 pm.

(NOTE: ZAMIR Choir will not perform  January 2021.)

High Holy Day Choir

Our High Holy Day Choir is directed by Lynn Yulish and participates in our Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services. This past year (2020) since our services were virtual, our talented choir worked hard to create the videos below. If you would like more information about our choir, contact Cantor Aaron Shifman. You can also hear the studio version of Cantor Aaron Shifman and the choir highlighting many prayers from the High Holy Days here.
