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.

The opportunity for study, contemplation, and celebration at Beth El's bar mitzvah Torah class retreat enhanced the joy and meaning of the occasion and deepened our family's Jewish experience.
