Sing? Play a musical instrument? Join the Kol Hakavod ("Voice of Honor") Ensemble, our congregational choir and instrumental group!

Click here to see the rehearsal schedule for the next upcoming performances during the 5777/2017 Shabbat Shir Shalom!

Kol Hakavod is both a dedicated choral and instrumental ensemble and an opportunity for ongoing adult education. Being a choir member provides you with a unique opportunity to explore Jewish music from the past and present under the guidance of Cantorial Soloist Abby Gostein. We welcome anyone who wishes to celebrate Jewish musical heritage, develop and improve their vocal and musicianship skills, and contribute to leading the prayers of our community in an especially powerful way. If you're interested in participating, please fill out our Participation Form

Not only is Kol Hakavod an integral part of our High Holiday worship, we also sing at congregational worship services and community events throughout the year. We're even recording artists! Listen to us sing on a track from Koleinu, a choral compilation published by Transcontinental Music Publications.


Do you have a child (grade 4-7) who would like to play their instrument as part of the synagogue music program? There is a kids' T'filah band that meets on Sundays from 11:30am to 12:15pm when Religious School is in session. One year’s experience studying the instrument they’d like to participate with is required. Students must bring their own instruments. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. for more information. 

Want to see them in action? Check out this parent-made video of Temple Beth Shalom's T'filah Band, led by Morah Caroline Bloom, performing Hall'lu for the school-wide Family T'filah on February 21st, 2016. Thanks to parent and congregation member Eden Myers for the video!

If you like to sing and have a great time with friends, then the Kids' Choir at Temple Beth Shalom is for you!

The Kids' Choir is a group of amazing youth in Grades 2 through 7 who come together to have fun learning and performing Jewish music. The Kids' Choir helps Temple Beth Shalom by lifting our spirits in song during our Sunday T'filah services, on holidays and community celebrations (e.g., "Chanukah in the ‘Hood'"), and at Shabbat Shir Shalom (our annual extra-musical Shabbat service). 

Come join the Temple Beth Shalom Kids' Choir, which meets on Sundays from 11:30am to 12:15pm when Religious School is in session! All voices are unique gifts and everyone is welcome, so come and sing! No audition required, but a completed registration form is.
