Youth Choirs/Band

The Temple Emanuel Youth Choirs & Band

Without a doubt, music has a special plackol_keff_img_1e in our children’s lives. During moments of celebration, music has the magical ability to give voice to our emotions and to our feelings of shared humanity.

There is no better way to elevate our spirits and our connection to Jewish community than singing with friends and bringing joy to others.

Through the experience of choral singing, children learn the beautiful language of music, appreciate its poetry and rhythm, and develop leadership skills.

Under the talented and nurturing direction of our choral director, Eugenia Gerstein, the wide repertoire of music, including modern Israeli, liturgical and even rap, offers an exciting musical journey for each age group and provides an array of performance opportunities at both synagogue events and in the greater Jewish community.

We are proud to offer this fun, spirited activity to our Temple Emanuel youth!
