Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel taught “music is the only language that is compatible with the wonder and mystery of being."
Music is the heart of Shaaray Tefila.
We have been blessed with a long and rich musical history. Over the years, under the leadership of our cantors, the experience of worship at Shaaray Tefila has always represented the best of Jewish tradition. As our community grows and changes, our rituals, melodies and musical arrangements reflect our evolving identity. Cantor Todd Kipnis leads prayer at services, works with our choirs and instrumentalists and also presents musical programs and concerts throughout the year.
