Congregation Beth Shalom is a singing congregation. Sometimes people ask me if they should sing even if they can’t carry a tune. (Perhaps, as children they were told to mouth the lyrics instead of singing them.) I love to quote Rabbi Michael Remson (z’l/of blessed memory) who liked to say “the only solution, if you’re worried that you can’t sing, is to sing LOUDER!”
Our CBS Kabbalat Shabbat recording has 53 tracks featuring Tehilim תהילים (Psalms), Tefillot תפילות (Prayers), Zemirot זמירות (Songs) and B’rachot ברכות (Blessings). Music brings us together in joy and harmony. Traditional melodies and original compositions are sung throughout the year. The CBS Festival Choir, a volunteer choir performing during the High Holy Days, is directed by Professor Lee Kesselman.
