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.

In busy Boston, where it can takes weeks to make an appointment to see a friend, Beth El is an oasis where, when I make the effort, I find community, friendship, meaning and a Jewish home for my family.
