Congregation Bet Haverim is renowned for the breadth and quality of its vocal and instrumental music program. A recent musical highlight was the release of the Adult Chorus’ widely acclaimed debut CD, Shekhina’s Crown, a soulful collection of 18 traditional and contemporary musical selections that encompass the breadth of Jewish life and emotions and reflect the diversity and inclusiveness of the congregation.
“I'm listening to some of the most beautiful music I’ve ever heard. My heart has been in my throat for over an hour. Magnificent and sublime. The arrangements are so thoughtful and obviously demanding of excellence, which is proven. The solo voices and ensembles are beautiful. I love the little jazzy round in Shofarot – Wow! And then, "May Shekhinah Bless You" – Oh God! Now already unable to breathe, I’m moved into "En KeElohanu” and it just keeps going. "Ani Ma'amin" is riveting. Oh yes, I do love "L'Dor Vador;" take me there. I'll just start the disc over and keep listening.
“The CD is absolutely magnificent! Your music has the ability to open me up and transport me to connect with God/Spirit and the entire community at Congregation Bet Haverim. Thank you for providing us with such a treasure and for sharing your talent and brilliance with your community.
“WOW! It’s amazing, unbelievable and so beautiful. I’ve listened to A LOT of Jewish music and this definitely is up there as some of the best I’ve ever heard. I can't wait to start bragging about it to all the rabbis I know.”
