This year, celebrate the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. with a special Shabbat Shira service, featuring a vibrant and moving sermon-in-song with the Afro-Semitic Experience. MLK weekend is an ideal occasion to remember and renew the joint commitment of the Jewish and African-American communities to social justice and civil rights. We are delighted to welcome the Afro-Semitic Experience, a seven-member jazz ensemble who brought their unique “ethnic world music mix” to Temple Sinai a decade ago, to rave reviews. Come for the festive community dinner and stay for an extraordinary evening of music and worship! RSVP for dinner.
Music is an integral part of life at Temple Sinai and plays an important role in enhancing worship at all of our services. Senior Cantor Laura Croen heads our music staff, which includes Cantorial Soloist Robyn Helzner, Cantor Educator Rebecca Robins, and accompanist Neil Weston. The adult and junior choirs and in-house band Middle Matzah Conspiracy, are "labors of love" whose members volunteer their time and talents. The Music Committee collaborates with Cantor Croen to bring a wide range of musical programs to our community.
Middle Matzah Conspiracy (MMC), Temple Sinai's in-house band, brings lively jazz, as well as traditional and contemporary music to services and temple events. If you play an instrument, belong to Temple Sinai, and are post-Confirmation age, MMC is always accepting new members.
The adult choir sings traditional and contemporary music for all the sanctuary High Holiday services as well as special events throughout the year. While many choir members have sung together for years, new participants are always welcome! The adult choir is open to all temple members of post-Confirmation age. It isn't necessary to be able to read music or to audition to join the choir, just to be able to sing in tune. Interested in joining? Contact Linda Katz, assistant to Cantor Laura Croen.
The Junior Choir, for students in grades 4-6, meets Sunday mornings during Religious School.
