Jewish Music: Temple Judah’s Rich Heritage
Our Jewish musical heritage is rich. In order to keep it alive we need to partner this genre of music with melodies that allow our congregants opportunities for engagement through both listening and singing along. We recognize that each person relates to prayer differently and that different melodies will service people in different ways. So long as we know that the intention of each piece of music is about heightening prayer, we can weave an even richer tapestry of Jewish worship music into our services.
Temple Judah is fortunate to have been gifted an endowment that has allowed us to enjoy nationally and internationally known Jewish music performers such as Rick Recht, Wendy Becker and Rik Howard, Joshua Nelson, Java Jews band, and Cantor Jennifer Bern-Vogel.
