Music has the power to transform a moment, and to transform us. Even without words, music can calm or energize us.
Neither the music of prayer nor even the words themselves must remain unchanging.
Beth Shalom invites you to experience Shabbat, holidays and special occasions more fully by learning some of the uplifting and transformative music we have introduced to our community. When you learn these melodies and sing along in services, you open yourself to the transformational opportunities that music creates.
Rabbi Glickman and I hope that you not only enjoy listening to these recordings, but that you might consider downloading the playlist and listening often so that you can join us in song.
When all our voices rise in song together, we create a communal experience that will lift our prayers heavenward and lift our n’shamot, our souls at the same time!
I look forward to davening and singing with you soon!
Hazzan Tahl Ben-Yehuda
