Music at TI
Music -- in addition to Jewish cuisine -- is the soul of our community of faith. We embrace the importance of music in Jewish life and believe that it elevates prayer by providing its own language of hope and holiness during worship.
Our goal is to incorporate a diverse mix of cross-cultural, religious, secular, traditional, and contemporary Jewish music into our services. We often feature members of the congregation on guitar, piano, flute, ukulele, and other instruments, and on other occasions, we feature local or world-renowned Jewish artists, bands, and special guests such as Rick Recht, Robbi Sherwin of Sababa, Shira Klein a.k.a ShirLaLa, and more.
Regular Shabbat musicians include:
Rabbi Amy Feder & Rabbi Michael Alper
Our house band which includes Rob Aronson & Julie Aronson
TI's volunteer choir, Chavurat Shira
Jewish folk band, HaShemesh
Jillian Wolfman and Danielle Goldberg (Temple Israel youth group members)
