Music & Culture

Music is the soul of Beth El. Our services and holidays are filled with joyous singing guided by the spirited voice of our Cantor Lorel Zar-Kessler. Click on the links below to hear our songs, prayers and niggunim sung by Cantor Lorel Zar-Kessler. The singing of niggunim, soulful chants that are easily learned even by those who do not know Hebrew, is a distinctive characteristic of Beth El.

Growing up with a Jewish identity, but no Jewish education, I never would have guessed that I would one day feel so at home at Beth El and call it 'my shul'.
