Come find your voice at Congregation B’nai Israel! Music is at the heart of all that we do. If you love to sing, come join us. Whether you’re 8 or 80, we have a group just for you:
If you enjoy singing, this is the group for you. This adult singing group, led by Cantor Shore, teaches everything in a slow, easy-to-learn manner. There is no need to read music or Hebrew. Come join us for enjoyable evenings where we make beautiful Jewish music in preparation for services and other community events. The group has also become a Chavurah, with members coming together for events other than singing.
B’nai’s Big Beat Band (Adult Band)
Are you a frustrated musician who is looking for someone to make music with? Under the direction of Cantor Shore, the B’nai’s Big Beat Band makes terrific Jewish music come alive for the congregation and for themselves. This group uplifts us at services and really rocks the house! We are always looking for musicians to join in the fun.
Youth Band (7th to 12th grade)
Cantor Shore leads the most talented teen rock band around! If you sing or play a musical instrument this is the group for you. The “Shultones” learn upbeat music in a fun environment, and play for various services and programs throughout the year to their adoring fans.
Junior Chai Notes (3rd to 7th grade)
Have a budding star on your hands? Our Cantorial Associate, Sarah Freudenberger, leads this group of children in learning a wide variety of Jewish music for holidays and Shabbat. Cantor Shore and Sarah Freudenberger also work to prepare them for the role of Junior Cantor so they can lead services for the religious school.
Drama Club (3rd to 6th grade)
Cantor Shore and Cantorial Associate Sarah Freudenberger will direct the children in their very own Purim Shpiel that is performed for the entire religious school. The children meet Thursday afternoons prior to Purim to rehearse a play and music that they have chosen.
For more information or to sign-up for any of these groups, please contact Ali Rancman.
*Our orginal Purim Shpiels give a hamish warmth to our holiday expression. It is with great blessing that we can share these treasures with other communities.
