Music

Music infuses all our gatherings. 

We begin morning meeting with songs that rouse families to come together as a community.   

Students learn history, culture, and language through songs—in Yiddish, Hebrew, Ladino, and English. 

At holiday celebrations, we sing traditional songs as well as creating our own musical traditions.

Instrumental music is also a great strength of our program.

Our faculty includes world-class klezmer musicians in violin, saxophone, and accordion.

Teachers inspire our students, and flexibly embrace all levels of musical experience and proficiency.

Children become familiar with the rhythms and cadences of klezmer music and bring their own musical talents and interests to community performances.
