Singers and Instrumentalists for the High Holy Days

Musical participation by congregants adds so much to the spirit and beauty of our services. Our musical slots are now filled for the 2019 High Holy Days.  Thank you to all who signed up!

Teen-Led Music for the High Holy Days

Teens, you are invited to help lead music for the Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur Intergenerational services for Temple Beth Shalom!

Sing and/or play your instrument.  You can help lead one prayer (e.g. V’ahavta), or many--whatever is your comfort level. 

Service Dates

Rosh Hashanah is on Monday, Sept. 30, and Yom Kippur is on Wednesday, Oct. 9, 2019. The intergenerational services will run from 8:30 a.m. to about 10:15 a.m. You will need to arrive by 7:45 a.m.

Rehearsal Dates (in Temple Beth Shalom sanctuary)

Sunday, Sept. 8, 1:45 p.m.-3:45 p.m. (focused on RH)
Sunday, Sept 15, 1:45 p.m.-3:45 p.m. (focused on YK)

Please sign here if you will participate. 

Please familiarize yourself with some of the music here. This repertoire may be adjusted over the course of the summer. If you’re interested in having a large role in leading the music, the more you know well from the link above, the more you can potentially help with!

Learn to Blow the Shofar--or Practice Your Skills!

Temple Beth Shalom is looking for interested volunteers (all ages) to join the Shofar Corps. Our Shofar Corps members lead the congregation in sounding the Shofar calls at High Holy Day services. No experience necessary—our Shofar Corps will get together to practice over the summer. Interested? Please email Mark Dreyfus at to get added to the email list and receive notice of practice dates. 

Rehearsals will be held on the following Sundays from 3:00-4:00 p.m. at Temple Beth Shalom:

  • August 4
  • August 18
  • September 15

Whether you're a veteran of the Shofar corps, or maybe a wanna-be first timer, please join in!
