"The great 20th century Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel wrote in his article "The Vocation of the Cantor" that "...music is a vessel that may hold anything." For Reform Jews, music holds our prayers, lifting them from the soul of the individual to create communal bonds and magnificently reach the Divine. As Reform Jews grow and change, so will the music of the synagogue, balancing authenticity with innovation, incorporating the collective past as we create our future."
~Cantor Mary Thomas
At Temple Anshe Sholom we have a long tradition of worshiping with "voice and lyre" together as described in Psalms. Our voices raise in harmony and our instruments are piano, guitar, violin, ukelele, and rhythm instruments of all kinds. We welcome participation through our Temple Jam Choir. If you play an instrument you may also be included in our Temple Jam Band. If you would like to learn to play an instrument, Temple offers Jewkulele night, the second and forth Thursdays of each month when we gather with ukuleles to play together. Beginners are welcomed.
