“The worth of public worship depends upon the depth of private worship,
of the private worship of those who worship together.”
– Abraham Joshua Heschel, Man’s Quest for God

Music at Temple Beth Emeth

Jewish music plays an important role at TBE under the direction of Cantor Regina Hayut. The Adult Choir, Kol Halev, sings during High Holy Day services, on a monthly basis at Friday night services and at concerts throughout the year. 

The Youth Choir performs in services and concerts at the temple and in the community. Middle School Shir Chadash and High School Shir Chadash, the student choral and instrumental ensembles, perform in services and concerts and periodically hold “Cafe TBE” evenings of music in an informal cafe atmosphere. A late-winter concert by all four choirs is one of the highlights of the year.

See below for some of TBE’s favorite music at services.
