Jewish Choral Music has always had a special place in my heart. Several members of our synagogue chorale regularly attend the North American Jewish Choral Festival. Here we learn new choral music and have a chance to sing with hundreds of other Jewish community singers. I had the honor of performing the following work with Cantor Benjie Ellen Schiller and NAJCF youth ensemble assembled that week!

Kaddish, by Jay Danzig

Performed at the 2004 North American Jewish Choral Festival by

  • NAJCF Youth Chorus
  • Cantor Benjie Ellen Schiller
  • Hazzan Eugene Rosner
  • Alan Mason, piano

Another special NAJCF performance occurred a few years ago. We are in a Jewish Community Choirs golden age of sorts, where new ensembles are springing up everywhere. How wonderful!

Several of our members are actually singers in NASHIRAH, the Philadelphia Adult Jewish Community Choir.

It’s always great inviting local community talent to our synagogue.  It’s another great privilege to have been soloist with the Haverford Chamber Singers. As you can see, synagogue music and choral music can go hand in hand!
